The band came to life at a Day of the Dead party in 2015 where the eclectic lineup of Claudi (Puerto Rico), Rai Mundo (Chile) and Ofer (Israel) met and instantly knew they'd never be alone again.
The result of a two-year residency on the Lower East Side’s Delancey St. station, Pinc Louds pair together jazz ballads with broken bottles, doo-wop harmonies with drunk phone calls, and punk ditties with public announcements. With her sweet and raspy voice, lead singer Claudi Love sings a coming-of-gender story, a search for soul, body, and a man called Manuel Hillario. She urges you to capture dreams, welcome werewolves, and let roaches in your hair, like you just don’t care.
“When an artist cites Billie Holliday, Daniel Johnston, Pixies and Os Mutantes as their influences, it can be easy to assume they are confusing artists they admire with artists they genuinely take inspiration from. Pinc Louds, however, pull off this combination with flair.” - The Deli Magazine
“Pinc Louds is the fantastical puppet-and-falsetto-laden musical ensemble you didn’t realize you desired.” – Bedford and Bowery
“Claudi Love’s Pinc Louds combines all the best parts of NYC into one band. They’re underground, yet inclusive; they’re unique yet relatable and they encourage people to let their true selves shine.” – BTRtoday
