Pinkish Blu – Superstar | Music Video


After the huge success of 2018’s “Capricorn” and “Lovely”, Australian quartet Pinkish Blu are back with their latest dream-pop track “Superstar”.


Featuring their signature synth-sound and moody, goosebump-worthy vocals, “Superstar” paints it’s own world for the listener, effortlessly combining an 80s snare and 90s guitar tones with a modern pop hook. Full of simultaneously joyful and heart-wrenching moments, made nostalgic by vintage effects, the song’s accompanying music video feels like a hazy, romantic window into a youthful relationship.


Lead singer Bruce spoke about the idea of the song:


“I guess I wanted to talk about what love can be without being mushy and sappy; I didn’t want to go to that place of weakness, I wanted to go to a place of wonder and intrigue. For instance, when you really feel love, the sky may seem more blue, and the smell of rain might make you hungry… Love can really enhance the part of us that has brought the world all of its weird and wonderful art.”


The band has been able to develop their sound by taking their post-punk, new-wave, synth-pop influences and creating their emotional, dreamy and brutally honest music. Having been compared to M83 and The 1975, the band have big shoes to fill but are doing so with tact and grace.
