PINK COCOON live is loud, but can be soft when needed. It’s doom, it’s blues, it’s pop, it’s rock n roll. With a wide range of influences, the band melds an intricate soundscape that spans across genres. Providing a solid groove, the PINK COCOON experience includes headbanging and dancing for an overall great time.
PINK COCOON started as a solo project by Zolla Marc recording all instruments and vocals in studio. He plays with a bassist and drummer for the live shows to maintain the power trio sound. The current tour lineup consists of Patrick Murphy on the drums and Noah Amick on bass. With low-fi/garage rock EP “Alienation” (2017) under his belt, PINK COCOON plans to consistently release music with a different, crisp edge this year. A new single already planned to be unveiled in the coming weeks.
Fans of Black Sabbath, Jimi Hendrix, and Nirvana will enjoy the musical stylings of PINK COCOON.

“The songs are some of the best, stylistically, since Death Metal Pope dropped their ‘Harvest’ EP at the end of 2016. If you like a riff…and especially one that comes from a very heavy Hawkwind headspace, then you need to seek out this release immediately.” – Real Gone Rocks
“The sound and the flow of ‘Alienation’ holds up to repeat listening pretty well. A lot of the ‘flow’ appeal comes from straightforward song structures that are geared towards classic rock music.” – Grizzly Butts
“Fully absorbed into the world of squalling feedback solos and a psychedelic blues atmosphere, Pink Cocoon immediately step above the rest of the Witchcraft clones by being truly doom in their output.” -Those Once Loyal
“With trusty pedals and multiple influences, the Pink Cocoon sound is a force to be reckoned with.” – Bucketlist Music Reviews
“They play a more mellow and bluesy style of stoner, cited on their website as “doom blues for your soul”, which, quite frankly, is exactly what it is. Their riffs are thick yet soft-edged, and when coupled with vocalist Zolla Marc’s soothing yet rough style of singing, create a beautifully warm atmosphere. To be cheesy, the name is fitting.” – Metal Megalomania
“Montreal’s Pink Cocoon brings heaps of fuzzy goodness with classic grunge pop songwriting. Their six song EP contains some seriously addictive bluesy riffs plus choruses that deliver oodles of ear worms that would have gotten them signed instantly to a major label a few decades ago.” – Indy Metal Vault
