The band known as Pink Elefants released their latest single “Sound of Violence” this past Friday. It is a lo-fi track that is dark and shrouded in mystery. The vocals start soft and subtle until the last chorus when the bass heavy hip hop beats intensify.
“Sound of Violence” is a song that turns a party inside out, looking at the darker side of it — drugs, alcohol and violence. Although this song is about a party, the lyrics are relevant to the current issues in today’s society — referencing the violence in our own world.
Pink Elefants dropped the music video for the single as well. We see the duo behind a dark backdrop while harsh, colorful lights flash on them throughout — adding more to its dark and mysterious themes.
This is the Maryland duo’s second single of 2021, having released a much brighter track in “Call This Love” back in February. The song is sitting at an impressive 34.5K views on YouTube.
The duo consisting of Finch and Illeven debuted in 2019. They have been releasing singles ever since. With each song, Pink Elefants proves to the world that they cannot be put in a box — nor do they even want to.
Their single “Panic Automatic” shows the band diving into the rock genre, currently sitting at over 208K streams on Spotify. In “Blame on Me,” we see them making a pop-centered track. They even experimented with Latin pop in their single, “19 Mexico.”
Now with their latest single, they’re blending alternative hip-hop and pop, similar to the style of The Weeknd, especially in his early Trilogy music. They’ve even drawn comparisons to Twenty One Pilots.
Pink Elefants are moving with crazy momentum now, showcasing their versatility and creativity with their music. They’re making something that’s fresh, which is just what we need. What else could they have in store for us? We’ll just have to wait and see.
