PINS have shared their excellent new video for Dazed By You.

It pairs their hazy sonic ruminations with antiquated Super 8 footage of a journey across America interjected with chalk-like drawings.

It is taken from their excellent recent release Wild Nights.

MM faves, Manchester four-piece PINS have released their latest 7″ Too Little Too Late on Bella Union.

They’ve shared its b-side, a cover of Misfits’ Hybrid Moments, complete with some typical PINS style choir girl harmonies and all in 90 seconds…

Have a listen – its a cracker.

PINS - Too Little Too Late

Manchester four-piece PINS have announced the release of their new album Wild Nights on 8th June via Bella Union.

The first 7″ single from the album, Too Little Too Late, will precede it on 30th March. The perfect taster for the album,  it opens with a fearless drumbeat and heavy bassline before slowing into a sparse momentary instrumental. The track then reverts back to Faith Vern’s alluring vocal before finally stampeding heavily into a fuzzed up sound clash of guitars and drums.

It is our favourite PINS track so far…watch the super slow motion video for it below. Order the single here.

New Video: PINS – Come Back

We love the abrasive dark pop, post punk, fuzzed up garage sound of PINS. Watch the slightly surreal clip for Come Back that features the band on and off-stage at a taping for a bizarro, Top Of The Pops-esque music program.

PINS Cover The Belles

PINS will return with a limited edition cassette EP Come Back for Cassette Day on 27th September.

The Manchester four-piece have shared the title track, a cover of the The Belles song from 1966, which delivers a sound not unlike the mighty Rezillos put in a blender with We’ve Got A Fuzzbox. The EP also features two other covers of 1960s girls in the garage bands, with PINS making each track their own by adding their unique dark pop, post punk, fuzzed up garage sound and alluringly abrasive chant-like vocals.

Be sharp though, the EP is limited to just 100 cassettes.

Our favourite fiery Manchester four-piece PINS have unveiled a new double video for the brooding new versions of Shoot You and Eleventh Hour. Notably, the video opens with acclaimed actress Maxine Peake reading an original poem written by PINS vocalist Faith Holgate.

Watch it here. Stream the originals below.
