The Pink Nostalgia unveils indie-pop EP ‘Youth & Observation’

The Pink Nostalgia’s third EP, ‘Youth & Observation,’ is a dazzling record that combines nostalgia with modern indie-pop brilliance. With influences from The Smiths, The Japanese House, and Talking Heads, The Pink Nostalgia weaves a hyper-personal, 80s-inspired journey through his coming-of-age experiences, relationships, mental health, and sexuality. Each of the six tracks is a captivating snapshot, showcasing Joseph James’ heartfelt reflections and emotions, backed by gorgeous instrumentation and impressive production.

‘Who are you now?’ immerses us in a lush narrative, inspired by Yazoo’s ‘Only You,’ while ‘It’s Alright’ becomes the emotional centerpiece, featuring the remarkable Fran Lusty, expressing gratitude to his younger self and parents. The EP’s finale, ‘Space & Time,’ bursts with infectious energy reminiscent of The 1975 and The Japanese House, leaving us spellbound.

Joseph James’ talent shines brightly in ‘Youth & Observation,’ making it a must-listen, soul-stirring musical journey that will undoubtedly win hearts and leave a lasting impact on the indie pop scene.
