Decisive Pink, the new project from Angel Deradoorian and Russian musician Kate Shilonosova (aka Kate NV), are releasing their debut album together, Ticket to Fame, on June 9 via Fire. Now they have shared its latest single, “Dopamine.” The song satirizes consumerism and online shopping addiction, as does its music video. JJ Stratford directed the video. Watch it below.

Previously we posted two tracks from Ticket to Fame: opening track “Halffmilch Holiday” and “Ode to Boy.” “Ode to Boy” was shared via an ’80s influenced music video (think Robert Palmer) and as its title suggests, the song references Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy,” from his Symphony No. 9. “Ode to Boy” was one of our Songs of the Week.

Ticket to Fame was recorded in Köln (aka Cologne), Germany, at a friend’s studio. The studio features a large collection of analogue synthesizers. “It was very exciting to step into the ‘synth-dome’ as I think of it,” says Deradoorian in a press release. “I can’t remember all the synths we used, but definitely one of the Prophets, a modular, a Juno, a Jupiter, a Rodeo, a synth with a bee on it and some synth from the 1980s that Kate knew about.”

The album was then finished in Deradoorian’s downtown Los Angeles rehearsal space.

In 2020, Deradoorian released the album Find the Sun via ANTI-. It was put out simply under her last name. She was formerly the bassist/vocalist for Dirty Projectors.
