I’ve been a fan of Pink Cigar for a few years now, ever since I watched the glorious video for the track ‘Blues to Bed’. Last year, the band released ‘Pink Cigar 2017’ a…well, a bunch of tracks (it wasn’t officially an album), and that release knocked my socks off in the best way possible. (Read my review.)
Now, the band has released their new single ‘Get Up’, and it comes with a fabulous, brand-spanking new video that follows the band around at various gigs and venues. This tune is prime Pink Cigar – catchy as hell, instantly addictive, dirty rocking with a bluesy weight to it. It is also chock full of that gritty, irrepressible, kick-ass energy that infuses most everything this band does.
The band has some gigs lined up in the near future as well – head over to Pink Cigar’s official website to find out all the details.
