This week, Features contributor Alyssa Edes speaks with Ava and Logan of PINKSQUEEZE, a Chicago-based queer femme indie rock four piece. They discuss how their sapphic cover of "Stacy's Mom" is really just a ploy to get moms' phone numbers, how Tinder helped finalize the band's member lineup, their upcoming album Be Gay Have Fun!, and the importance of healing your inner child and showing queer joy.
"Having a full rock band setup was always [co-founder] April and I's mission for the band. We felt like the music that we wanted to make in this project together was so centered on our queer experiences that we felt like the music that we were making needed to be told from perspective of people who shared identities or similar identities so it could be authentic and truthful." - Ava
PINKSQUEEZE will be celebrating the release of Be Gay Have Fun! at Cobra Lounge on Saturday, May 20th.
Produced by Alyssa Edes.
