Pegboard Nerds - Pink Cloud (ft. Max Collins)

10/12/2015 Tunes For Loons 0 Comments

I didn't find this out after I fell in love with it, but "Pink Cloud" was released in conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness month. Furthermore, all proceeds from Pegboard Nerds' EP are going toward Fuck Cancer, the best titled non-profit in the game. How fucking cool is that!? Especially because Pegboard Nerds is made up of 2 Scandinavian dudes. Not that I wouldn't expect this kind of dedication towards titty cancer from DJs, but...I wouldn't. Mainly because I would never associate DJs with anything besides hedonism and raves. So thank you Pegboard Nerds, for opening my eyes to the philanthropic DJs of the world. Maybe you are the only ones. "Pink Cloud" doesn't even sound like it though, that's the best part. It can stand alone as a (non-cancer) dance party anthem. There are ADHD synthesizers, there are sugary vocals. There is a torrent of background clapping. Mostly, it sounds like a song from Mario Kart. In the best way. I wish all content related to cancer was this uplifting.
