Four gals from Manchester are bringing it back like it's 1985.
I'm talking about Pins. And every cut I've heard from these women so far has been a gnarly stomper in line with classic The Jesus and Mary Chain. There's a touch of The Shangri-Las here as well, and a bit of the old V.U. throb.
The band is going on tour soon and there's a 10 inch coming out on Bella Union in October.
There's a nod to (very) early Cocteau Twins here, especialy on "Eleventh Hour" -- see below -- and so the label run by ex-Cocteaus Simon Raymonde and Robin Guthrie seems like an apt choice for the release of the band's new record.
I look forward to hearing much, much more from Pins. They've got a distinctive sound that takes some very obvious influences into new directions.
For now, follow Pins online:
