PinkFiz is an eighteen year old punk pop artist from Cambridgeshire. Having previously performed as part of other bands, the musician started her solo project during lockdown 2.0, as a way to continue writing and creating while stuck in isolation. PinkFiz represents female empowerment and the songwriters pride in being an independent female artist and producer. Her latest single Did I Ask? touches on female consent, which she spoke with The Fountain about in more detail below.
TF: You have a new single out, what has the reception been like to Did I Ask?
The reception to Did I Ask? has been insane, such an overwhelming amount of positive support. I know a lot of people are very passionate about the subject of equality and consent and I’m happy to share the message with them.
TF: Timely and significant where did the influences for this track come from?
This track is influenced by my own experiences as well as the disturbing amount of stories I’ve heard from friends and peers and it’s just not okay. This song was my way of protesting everything and my way of saying it needs to be stopped. I feel it’s important especially in the music industry to address these issues and to make sure women feel safe.
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this release?
My plan for the rest of this year is to continue to release more music, I have an EP coming out in May which I’m very excited about. And hopefully I can get back to gigging again soon.
TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging?
I think my favourite gig venue that I’ve played at has to be Voodoo Lounge in Stamford, it’s got such a lovely atmosphere and it’s where I played my first ever gig so it holds quite a lot of memories. I’m not sure where the next place I’m looking forward to gigging but one venue that’s on my list of places I’d love to perform is Rock City in Nottingham or Electric Ballroom in Camden that would be a dream come true.
