Pretty In Pink

Pretty in Pink (PIP) is Claire McCarthy (guitar/vocals), Lauren Mason (guitar) and Elliot Taylor (bass/drums). The band is named after the 1986 film, in which Andie (Molly Ringwald) is a highschool outcast hanging at the record store. In the final scene, Andie utters, “I just wanna let them know that they didn’t break me.” Like the movie (or its reputation: viewing is not necessary), PIP captures a euphoric nostalgia for being an outsider among friends; the romantic allure of standing apart, of having to make your own scene
