Pink Blob, the new Toronto-based genre-bending hyper-rock project of ex-Weaves members, Morgan Waters and Spencer Cole have shared their single, Friday Rocker which comes mixed by Graham Walsh (METZ, Preoccupations, Alvvays). Formed during a global meltdown through equal parts love and revenge, Pink Blob is bent pop music formed through colliding genres and covered in a layer of scuzzy guitars and shredding drums.
Speaking about the new single, which finds Pink Blob tapping into a straight-up rock aesthetic, Waters explains: “The lyrics started with a Melissa Etheridge reference and unfolded from there, a song about aging but not wanting to grow up. A song about finding common ground with my dad who loves smoking weed and turning up the stereo till his eyes water.”
“Pink Blob is the sound of both sides of me fighting for dominance. I’ve always felt split in two halves, and this album clashes the hooky and the noisy, the straight and the gay, the emotional and the jokey and the masculine and feminine up against each other with the wild ferocity I tamper down in my day to day ‘I’m so embarrassed to be alive’ Canadian-ness. Death to boring. Death to snobs. Death to genre. Long live Pink Blob!”
