We last heard from young punk upstarts Ring Finger No Pinky with this summer’s “Girl Tsunami” single. Since then, the band have returned to playing shows and assembling a suite of new material for future release. In November, we heard their latest dispatch via “Annoyance Displeasure Hostility.”
Maybe you feel it too — a great tension in the air. Whether it’s the sweltering summer heat, the fires across the state, budget woes at the Capitol, or further audit-based malarkey (perhaps all of the above?), Arizona is under a great existential weight. But here’s some release in the from of new music — three-minute chunks of respite from the madness swirling all around. Here are our picks for the best songs of the month.
Welcome to the first episode of Deep Cuts, PHOENIX magazine’s new music podcast. In this episode, Griffin Brown and David Erickson of Ring Finger No Pinky join associate editor Madison Rutherford to discuss their influences, guilty pleasures and future collabs – and even teach us some new slang.
The local band Ring Finger No Pinky will take its song to the Rebel Lounge stage when it opens for Twin Ponies on Saturday, May 29. This will not be Ring Finger No Pinky’s first performance at the venue. The band played there just before the pandemic in December 2019.
“Ring Finger No Pinky made their debut EP Chlorine Bomb on May 22nd. Rest assured it is just as explosive as the EP title would suggest. From Napalm Sticks to Kids, you’ll get a volatile infusion of Grunge and Anarcho-Punk, complete with a chorus which is as infectious as COVID-19. Ring Finger No Pinky is definitely a band you will want on your radar.” – Review by Amelia Vandergast
