"What's Going On With Ordinary People" by The Reds, Pinks & Purples

Crystalizing the tragic self-celebrating kingdoms of fortunate failures, false heroes, music press deities of limitless deceit, hometown dive gods and humanity in the grips of all its romanticized wonder and woe — the latest missive from DIY pop titan The Reds, Pinks & Purples takes aim at the threads of hope with an untethered abandon into the intimacy and dualities of idolatry and isolation with Unwishing Well.

Speaking on the single the artist says: “’What’s Going On With Ordinary People,’ like a lot of my songs, you can get the main idea in the title. We have probably all been wondering about this lately, with ordinary people jacked-up on propaganda, targeted advertising and general paranoia.”

Distilling the timelines of distinction from yesterday, today, tomorrow and whatever may be; Glenn Donaldson has materialized a musical phenomenon that embodies something more than all of its analogous inspirations. From a musical legacy that chronicles a long list of minor triumphs and major tragedies— the continued saga of The Reds, Pinks & Purples stands tall as the encapsulation of Donaldson’s own proliferation and prestige ever since its emergence in the late 2010s.

Upcoming live dates:

04/26 & 04/27 Minneapolis, MN – Cloudland Theater
