THE SELF-PROCLAIMED ‘SYNTH BEARS’ OF PROBE 7 CELEBRATE LGBTQ+ EMPOWERMENT WITH THEIR NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO FOR “PRETTY IN PINK (ISN’T HE)”.
Previously featured BWM Playlist group Probe 7 (synthesist Brent Heinze with vocalist Jasun Mark) is releasing their latest single “Pretty in Pink (Isn’t He)” featuring 15 remixes and a video for the song. This homage to the classic Psychedelic Furs track has been re-imagined, telling the story of a queer kid’s struggle for self-acceptance.
The single features dancefloor-friendly remixes by The Cassandra Complex, Ego Likeness, Angelspit, Provision, The AXIOM Divide, Eloquent, Revolution State, Spoils of Grace, Swishcraft, Jack Chang, Aliester Growley, James Grey, and Seven Whores of the Apocalypse with the video featuring students from the Sexuality & Gender Alliance (SAGA) at the College of the Desert.
“It is important for gay artists to tell their stories to empower others, especially younger people who are struggling to become comfortable with themselves and fight hatefulness and judgment that is unfortunately prominent in our society” states founder Brent Heinze.
The single for “Pretty in Pink (Isn’t He)” marks Probe 7’s 10th release on their own independent label Lokusdor Records. With their foundation firmly in the LGBTQ+ community, Probe 7 creates synth-driven songs that celebrate the diverse experiences of being alive. Their blend of new wave, industrial, synthpop, and rock influences create a danceable landscape paired with powerful lyrics that embrace love, loss, pain, and hope, a musical combination that is especially appealing to 80’s loving bears.
Probe 7’s “Pretty in Pink (Isn’t He)” continues the band’s efforts to engage music fans with emotionally driven songs that encourage and inspire. They are currently in the studio working on their next full-length album in Southern California.
