Track Of The Day: Pinky Pinky – ‘Do Me Dirty (Charlie)’

Imagine that classic American teen flick. Boy meets girl etc etc. This track is fitting for that part in the film where the girl realises she doesn’t need a man’s approval as she playfully frolics around her bedroom whilst going through some sort of reinvention of herself. In fact, once I’ve finished writing this, I’ll probably be that girl…

This sing-into-the-hairbrush, paint your nails black, slap a facemask on and call it self care song is ‘Do Me Dirty (Charlie)’ by LA trio Pinky Pinky.

Infectious and uplifting, the new release features sunny guitar which cruises carelessly atop of ebullient, glistening arpeggiated top notes of a piano and the anthemic hum of warm organ. The sugar-coated voice of singer and drummer, Anastasia Sanchez, resonates throughout like a breath of spring. The energy of this track is like a volcanic eruption of glitter and rainbows. I can’t stop smiling.

Sunglasses are advised.
