Pinky Pinky are a trio of almost-high school graduates who've covered an old, pretty song called "The Nest" by Jeannie Piersol (and written by Jefferson Airplane's Darby Slick) for the debut EP they're releasing this Friday April 21. It's always exciting when young ones who are way cooler than you'll ever be make music that sounds polished and tight right out the gate. With this one, Pinky Pinky experimented a little with their sound, playing around with some of their '60s psych influences, and it really works.

"'Nest' is a cover in the style of Jeannie Piersol written by Darby Slick," the gals wrote in a note to The FADER. "It's one of those rare tracks that are hard to find online and we sorta stumbled upon it and loved it. Not only did we want to step out of our comfort zone and experiment with something having a bit of soul, we wanted to bring light to this underrated track." Listen below.
