PYNKIE is the musical project of New Jersey’s Lindsey Radice, singer/songwriter and registered nurse by day. Lindsey has been making songs (or “songies” as she calls them) since she was a freshman in college. A friend from her dorm introduced her to the free recording software, Audacity, and the Blue Snowball USB microphone. She started out making silly songs about things like cup noodles and the rubber ducks on her dorm room shower curtains. Eventually, she began collaborating with other musicians and sound engineers to help bring her bedroom pop tunes to life, while also continuing to stick to her roots and releasing the occasional unpolished demo along the way. 

Lindsey’s sound is mostly inspired by nostalgic 90s/00s indie and alt rock (artists like Liz Phair, Julie Doiron, and that dog.) while also being influenced by more modern-day indie artists (Okay Kaya, Clairo, and Mitski). PYNKIE first started to gain online attention from her uploads on SoundCloud getting a significant amount of likes/plays/reposts. Her releases then began to be shared on YouTube by channels like David Dean Burkhart, Lazylazyme, and Magestic Casual. Earlier tracks “starry eyed – demo” and “Dew – Lo-Fi Version” have over a half million Spotify streams, with the latter topping over 1.5 million. This early attention motivated her to write and record more often, eventually leading to the creation of three full length albums. 

Her first album, neoteny, was deemed to be one of 2018’s best albums by Gorilla vs. Bear, despite it being self-released and of relatively lo-fi recording quality. In 2020, PYNKIE released her 2nd album, #37, via Fat Possum imprint House Arrest. Although a global pandemic prevented Lindsey from touring on the album, #37 still gained significant attention from various tastemakers and blogs (i.e. Nylon, No Ripcord!, Line of Best Fit, and Hype Machine). 

Lindsey shares this about her upcoming album, Songies: This is definitely the album I’m most proud of since it’s more cohesive and thematic than anything I’ve done before. Every song flows into the next, telling some strange dreamy story. The nostalgic feel of the songs mixed with modern synth soundscapes conveys colorful emotion and warmth. And as far as I know, no one has used the album title Songies before, so it had to be done.

First single, “Crushed Out,” is a song about being insecure about a crush, while also feeling like you have some kind of extra-dimensional connection with them in a dream state. Personally, I have had dreams with people in them only to find out they had the same dream on the same night. The fact that dreams could be a shared reality between dreamers is one of the most intriguing aspects of life! The music video (directed by Hayden Fray) depicts a pair of partygoers who find themselves transported to a shared alternate reality. After exiting the bathroom, they experience a glitch in the matrix which brings them together in an unexpected and unexplainable way.

Since making songies (and Songies in this case) is Lindsey’s favorite pastime, there are no signs of stopping and no telling where her musical adventures might take her next.
