The pink revolution begins here! Newly arrived on the FLW desk is Viva Le Pink’s three-track EP ‘London Crawlin’. Any preconceptions of this being something of a novelty act, then think again as this debut offering comes out of the traps at considerable haste with the swinging rockabilly influenced ‘Hell Kitty’ which is more snarling than purring and deceiving rather than loving, ‘You know she’s bad, she’ll make you sad’. It is left to ‘Queen O’ Jack’, though, to steal the limelight with its self-deprecating humour and delightful lyrical touches, ‘Every time I get near you, I feel like ahead of the pack’ as sometimes in life it’s not always about the monetary value. Nearly having laid all the cards on the table, Viva Le Pink rounds off proceedings with the appropriately chosen cover ‘Pink Elephants’ nicely supplemented with splashes of saxophone and gritty, driving guitars.
If the form displayed here can be maintained, then ladies and gentlemen we could be witnessing a new emerging talent on the rockin’ scene and one that is most definitely pink.
