Using her home studio, she creates euphoria with her songs, empowering others and igniting a spark amongst listeners, making them comfortable enough to scream out all their frustrations.
Her latest single “ON YOUR KNEES” offers listeners a truly remarkable realm of rockability and lavish lyrical bliss. Captivating her messages and meaningful melodies, the track is nothing short of perfection. Pinkfiz explains, “The story behind this song is about putting myself first, and instead of being the victim to people, I am giving myself the power to become their “villain”. It’s basically a power trip ego song to make people feel the power in themselves and let them know that they shouldn’t let anyone limit them or change themselves for someone else.”
With her EP The World of Pinkfiz reaching over 20,000 Spotify streams alone, and several broadcasting features on the likes of BBC Introducing Cambridgeshire, Pinkfiz is advocating her way into the alt-rock realm. Her pure passion and fire-fuelled energy are sure to ignite her career even further.
PinkFiz is an 18-year-old punk-pop artist from Cambridgeshire. Having previously performed as part of other bands, the musician started her solo project during lockdown 2.0, as a way to continue writing and creating while stuck in isolation. PinkFiz represents female empowerment and the songwriter’s pride in being an independent female artist and producer.
Her latest single “Did I Ask?” touches on female consent. Inspired by the riot grrrl scene and other feminist punk music, the emotion-fuelled “Did I Ask?” emits an energetic, angsty vibe, oozing with confidence and badass femininity. Reminiscent of Bikini Kill, Joan Jett and Destroy Boys, “Did I Ask?” erupts with punk/rock instrumentation, radiating a brooding bassline, fast-paced drums and howling lead guitar. The clashing guitars are a juxtaposition to PinkFiz’s soft, muted vocals, as she sings, “she’s not your possession.”
PinkFiz confides, “I wrote this song about the phrase “she was asking for it” because I was really angry that day about it and I needed to get all my frustration about it into words and into a song. I am very passionate about fighting for equality and about making opportunities for everyone the same. As a female guitarist, I have been overlooked in the past and disregarded and I’ve often felt invalidated and seen as not as good as my male peers. I also recalled being robbed of opportunities in school and begging for a chance to play something more technical and difficult but the parts I would ask for were always given to an older male teacher without me having a shot at trying them.” Refusing to stay silent, PinkFiz is acting as a voice, emphasising the importance of standing up for equality and putting an end to sexual harassment.
With the hopes to make listeners feel invincible and capable of anything, the empowering song will help you feel like you’re stomping on top of the world. Having garnered support from BBC Introducing, PinkFiz is storming to the forefront with “Did I Ask?”
This is a track which we need more of in the era we’re living in right now. When she confides “I’ve often felt invalidated and seen as not as good as my male peers”, this track proves how great she is and what her potential is for the future. There’s just something undeniable in the music for ‘Did I Ask?’ that hopefully will rally inside of the younger audience because the opportunity is now for this rowdy riot grrrl for fans to rally behind. Fingers crossed there’s more soon.
