Comprised of long time friends Joey Doubek and Ashley Arnwine, the band has delivered a dark, durgy and deceivingly sensitive collection. While previous releases represent anger and frustration, Collective Sigh provides a process of coping for vocalist Doubek, whose powerful delivery—from a high-pitched scream, as if he’s on the verge of cutting out, to a strong-trained melody—is one of a kind, undeniably unique.
Residing in Philly, PINKWASH came of age in DC and the political nature of their message is tangible. The name PINKWASH refers specifically to a type of marketing that capitalizes on the suffering of those with breast cancer. After Joey’s experience of being the primary caregiver to his mother who died of breast cancer, and Ashley being his friend through that time, the name seemed appropriate. It aims to draw attention to the wrongs of a system that capitalizes on and trivializes people’s pain and suffering. In that way, the name is both political and personal, just as Joey’s lyrics are on PINKWASH’s new LP.
