Shocking Pinks - Not Gambling
Possibly one of the best acts to ever come out New Zealand, Shocking Pinks ends his legendary 6 year break to bring us the first single from his upcoming 3CD LP. Recognizably sad-sack, lofi, post-punk is sort of Nick Harte's go to sound and Not Gambling is a trip down familiarity lane, except its also not. Harte constructs a deconstructed jimble jamble of sounds that Shockingly morphs into a pop-hook halfway through. If you're new to SP you might be like, bro this is kind of bogus.. but let me point you to some old tracks that may sway your opin. Check this and check the oldies and if you still hate it, then I'm seriously sorry, man.
