Producer and singer / songwriter yunè pinku shares her luminous new single “Sports”, alongside the announcement that her new EP “BABYLON IX”.
Co-produced with UK DJ and producer Jakwob (Shygirl, Nia Archives, Little Simz), “Sports” showcases bouncy breakbeats and swathes of atmospheric synth textures collide with hypnotic and dissociated vocals, creating a lustrous and pensive dancefloor number, another welcome addition to Pinku’s repertoire of intricately crafted dance anthems.
Speaking on the new single yunè pinku states: “Sports is based loosely on an angry version of Lana Del Rey’s ‘Video Game’—mainly just the idea of someone putting a TV screen before the people they care about and their own life. I envisioned a sort of Wall-E-esque future people glued to the chair with a TV guide vibe.”
The burgeoning producer is now set to hit the ground running with the upcoming ‘BABYLON IX’ project, a kaleidoscopic six-track collection which imagines a rave in space: a deep dive into a futuristic world. Written from a fever dream-induced lens, it’s a move away from the “sad girl garage” pinku has been making previously and envisions a glossy, sci-fi landscape with huge, structured pop songs bolstered by her ethereal electronics.
