PINS release new single and video
PINS are a 4-piece powerhouse from Manchester who we're a little bit excited about. Today they release their new single, 'Eleventh Hour', and it's like listening to all those noise-pop bands from America, or a HoZac/SubPop hybrid combining the filth of Crocodiles/Crystal Stilts with the songwriting ability of Dum Dum Girls.
Basically we love the band, and we love the song. We're about 99% sure you will too.
You can check out the Sing J. Lee directed video below, as well as the soundcloud stream. You can also buy the single on gold tape by clicking here.
