Pinkshift also released a video to accompany the new song.
“nothing (in my head)” is a charged track about feeling overwhelmed by the amassing issues that plague the world. Initially, Ashrita Kumar sings about finding comfort in her numbness, but that relief doesn’t last long as she begins crying out against her apathy.
The video alternates between shots of Pinkshift scrolling on their phones while being bombarded by media messages and rocking out.
The band discussed their inspiration for the track in a press release.
“‘nothing (in my head)’ is a cry for help. It’s about the feeling of wanting out, wanting a change in scenery, wanting to escape from feeling locked inside, claustrophobic and overwhelmed,” Pinkshift say. “This song is like a hand reaching out to anyone willing to grasp onto it and say they feel the same way. We hope people hear that and feel a little less alone.”
