Major Pink is a singer-songwriter and producer from Iceland. His bio waxes poetic. However, it turns out that this is not from a love of the written word, but instead, in his words, it is from his troubled mind. A troubled mind that invites you to explore its depths by indulging in Pink’s discography.
Major Pink is not new to the industry. He has been creating music for more than six years. When he started, he worked with Bardi Johannson, an award-winning Icelandic composer, musician, and writer more famous for working with Bang Gang and Lady & Bird. Some of Major Pink’s work includes Hope, the song he broke into the scene with, Too Close to The Sun, and Take the Abuse. Boasting over 50K streams on Spotify, Major Pink’s work has also received several awards and has been featured in films. Major Pink’s new single is a punk electro song called ,,Love Me Loud”
Love Me Loud is a song about celebrating women’s courage and supporting them as they stand against the patriarchy and against men who have treated them with anything other than the respect they deserve. It is a nod to movements such as MeToo that raise awareness on assault and harassment. In the song, Major Pink tells the story from the perspectives of three different men.
,,With these lyrics that tell the tale of these three types of men, I am doing my best to learn, grow and understand what the victims of this kind of abuse go through,’’ Says the musician Major Pink about his new release Love Me Loud.
According to him, there are three kinds of men that disrespect women, each with their distinctive foul behaviors. It is a bold move for Pink to tackle such a sensitive societal issue, especially considering that he admits to having crossed boundaries himself in the past. The song can be seen as penance, with Major Pink saying that he didn’t always know where the line was and that he hopes this song will help educate men on what is right and wrong.
Love Me Loud opens with a heavy guitar sound that sounds like it has come from an 80s rock song. As the song picks, there is an infusion of punk and electro, Pink’s signature style. The rock and punk vibe give the song an aggressive nature, matching the antagonistic message of the men he embodies in the song. The aggressive vibe would also work well as a catharsis for any woman who may have experienced any form of abuse. True to form, Major Pink doesn’t hold anything back in the lyrics. He chooses words and phrases that any woman could swear they have heard before. One of his most striking lines is when he speaks of a man who thinks he can always get what he wants, “I can’t get enough, I can’t ever get enough, So many things I want to do, When all these things you don’t approve, So sorry baby you don’t get to choose, All alone you are gonna lose.”
