Ifyou’re a fan of angsty musical ladies and all things analogue then you’ll love Pins’ new video. Recorded on Super 8 and shot on Brighton beach the quirky footage is set to the single ‘Get With Me’. With a vintage girl group vibe the video, shot by guitarist Lois Macdonald, mimics the raw sound and style of the band. With hints of punk drowned in an authentic 80’s garage rock, the grunge bass lines and punchy vocals are often contrasted with beautifully haunting backing vocals.
The band, formed in Manchester, consists of four well-coiffured songstresses with a passion for vintage fashion and video. As much as they love some DIY audio/visual activities the band are happy to have collaborated with directors Sing J Lee and Amy Watson on some stunning past videos.
Ahead of their European and French Tour PINS could be heard on Mark Riley’s show on BBC 6 Music. Catch the girls at Birthday, Dalston on 9th October. Through Bella Union Record label, founded by the Cocteau Twins, their debut album ‘Girls Like Us’ will be released on 30th September.
