Pink Frost debut video for “Where Days Go” from “Gargoyle Days” LP

By on October 5, 2012

Embracing the coming darkness of a Chicago winter, Pink Frost debut the “psychedelicious”new video for “Where Days Go”from the Gargoyle Days LP on Impose.
I’ve been waiting for the ‘90s to come back for ages. And here comes Perry Farrell’s wayfaring punk rock little sister, Pink Frost, releasing the music video to “Where Days Go,” displaying precocious psychedelic flair. Formerly known as Apteka, the Chicago outfit will be delivering the The Sun” b/w “You Should Know 7-inch soon, which we know because we’ve seen the laquers being cut.
Awash in captivating reverb, swirling melodies and soaring, anthemic refrains, Gargoyle Days explodes between the umbra and the sun.  To hear more from the LP, give a listen to lead single, “Striking Violet.”

Watch the release video for Gargoyle Days to hear the title track from the new LP.

Press praise for Pink Frost
While it’s nice to see Billy Corgan again get his act together, write some proper tunes and not berate his fans, the fact is this local act is out-smashing Smashing Pumpkins.  Pink Frost’s storming new Gargoyle Days makes the new Jane’s Addiction sound hugely unnecessary, too.”
Time Out
The group’s talents are thrown into stark relief and you realize how finely crafted the band’s music is
Chicagoist
With a heady mix of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, the epiphanal rush of shoegaze, with the intensity of Jane’s Addiction they’re truly the great band that’s flown under your radar too long.
The Dumbing of America

Gargoyle Days is the most addicting local release I’ve had the pleasure of listening to this year. I can’t listen to one track without spinning a handful more. It’s been fairly disgusting, actually, how commonplace it’s been for me to listen to Gargoyle Days from beginning to end and then go: “Well, that was nice. And now let’s go and do that again.”  Full disclosure: It probably goes without saying that Gargoyle Days will be at or near the top of my year-end list when I get around to writing it… “Striking Violet” is wonderful.
Chicago Tunes
An increasingly commanding quartet that embraces the power of guitar drone, tribal drumming and the deep, shoegaze-era swoon.
Chicago Tribune, Traitors7” Top 2010 albums from Chicago Indies
If snowstorms shed sparks or cicadas caught fire. If you longed so much for something that you could never sleep again. Or if all your friends started playing electric guitars at once.
Said the Gramophone
With its chiming guitar, churning rhythms, expansive atmospherics, and keening, melodic vocals, the song presses the same buttons as classic Ride. I expect good things from this band, and soon.
Chicago Reader
This scrappy Chicago rock band takes the DIY-values of Pavement, the wide-eyed excitability of Dinosaur Jr. and the frantic, flourished drumming of Keith Moon, tosses it all into a blended, and slathers it with a thick coating of shoegazer fuzz that would make My Bloody Valentine proud…a sonic maelstrom of energy blasting through your speakers, all teetering guitar and an ambiance that makes it sound as if it was recorded during the middle of a huge blizzard.
The Brown Noise
Pink Frost weaves a curious star bound tapestry that falls between the generic staples of shoe gaze, tear arsing shimmer toned power pop and fringe flicking shade adorned lysergic psyche groove, the thumping ‘cicada song’ sound like a wired and antagonised early career Ride re-sculpturing discarded Barrett Floyd / 13th Floor Elevators motifs while ‘the sheet’ it seems is currently streets ahead on the listening count though sadly the blighter refused to play for us – gremlins in the machinery I gather.
Losing Today
Take the breathiness of Stoned And Dethroned era Jesus and Mary Chain and English shoegazer harmonies, along with an album-consistent palpitating beat. Best of all is the way the whole track leads somewhere – soft beginnings to strongly strummed reverb drenched guitars, to fierce and sheathing keys, to – finally – an amalgamation of all the above. This song, in particular, is four minutes of satisfaction.
