Pixel Grip "Pursuit"

Pixel Grip has released a new single, "Pursuit", from their forthcoming LP, Arena, which is due out later this year via Chicago's Feel Trip. This is the first new music from the trio of Rita Lukea, Jonathan Freund, and Tyler Ommen since their 2019 debut album Heavy Handed.

This single shows the trio's eagerness to return to the stage and club and feel the energy of an audience. Lukea had this to say about "Pursuit"; [it] distills a very specific feeling to me: the feeling of surrendering power, the feeling of having your love chewed up and spit out, the feeling of getting toyed with. Sometimes love isn’t empowering; in fact it can be humiliating and disabling. The only way I can take my power back is to pretend like it’s my decision. This song is designed to be screamed along with by an audience who understands the pain"
