"Pinc Louds Is All About The Love"

“Claudi'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

"Paul Banks (of Interpol) after seeing Pinc Louds playing on the street"

"I don't want to waste words trying to describe magic, but this music tuned my soul today" - Paul Banks, singer of Interpol

"Deli covers Pinc Louds"

“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 in Chicago"

"Pinc Louds prove that strange and wonderful things can still grow in the cracks of gentrification’s pavement." - Chicago Reader


"Fusing alternative with doowop and soul, Pinc Louds truly create their own genre. Claudi cited poems, wailed, screamed, and sung both soft and strong. The music was so personal, like the raw tunes we shout while alone in the shower. 
Pinc Louds inspired the listeners to let go of their reservations, as their unique music encourages others to be true to themselves, no matter how different or strange.” - Highlark

"Pinc Louds at Knitting Factory"

Leading lady Claudi, does ecstatic dances between singing and plays the kalimba as well as the guitar with the same level of passion. The performance is full of life, and the set runs with a crazed energy that comes from the band and permeates the room. - Sweetstatic

"Delancey St. Station"

"A spooky, sugary warble like the reincarnation of Billie Holiday." - Wildness

"Help Pinc Louds go from the garbage to the studio"

"Their "hardcore acoustic doowop” music is equally transformative, seamlessly going from kind falsetto ballads to a shrieking, raucous number and back again, all while providing fantastical lyrics, and interesting stories." - Bedford and Bowery


Pinc Louds (2016)
Delancey St Station (2018)



Pinc Louds’ lead singer, Claudi, moved from Puerto Rico to NYC in 2015 to fulfill her dream of playing her songs in the subways. Through the literal underground she met many creatures, including the musicians, artists and puppeteers that would turn Pinc Louds into the full-blown spectacle they are today. Their passionate shows with wild theatrics and giant puppets have been packing NYC venues such as (le)Poisson Rouge, Elsewhere, Joe’s Pub, and Knitting Factory ever since.

With members hailing from Chile (Rai Mundo, drums), Israel (Ofer Bear, bass), NY (Marc Mosteirin, keyboard) and Puerto Rico (Claudi, vocals, guitar, kalimba; Pele, backup vocals), Pinc Louds draws influences from such diverse artists as Pixies, Billie Holiday, Os Mutantes, Ismael Rivera and Daniel Johnston. Their songs have the melodic sensibility of a 1920’s crooner mixed with the psychedelic danceability of tropicalia and the bright harmonies of the most delectable doowop records… But in essence, they are a rock band. Gritty, sincere, thrilled to be alive.

Their live shows range from punk-y dance parties to elaborate immersive musicals where the audience is invited to find sunken treasures guarded by giant squids or ride out a nuclear apocalypse in a rat-infested subway station.

Their puppets are made and given life by Jamie McGann, Madison Berg, Kevin Perez and Jamie Emerson.

 Pinc Louds is currently recording their second album which will include songs in Spanish and English and is scheduled to be released in mid 2020. Their new material brings their tropical influences into full swing, while maintaining the heartbreaking honesty that made subway-riders from all walks of life fall in love with them in the first place.
