Now that it's officially December, it seems like a good time for some new Christmas music! Luckily, Pins are here to help with their latest Christmas track 'Kiss Me Quickly (It's Christmas).' It's taken from their Christmas compilation which has tracks from Shinies, September Girls, Brown Bogues, and Post War Glamour Girls and will be released on the band's record label, Haus of Pins. Any proceeds the band makes from the compilation will be donated to SWAP, an organization that helps asylum seekers and refugees.

In the true spirit of giving, Faith Holgate was inspired by her 81 year old grandfather who volunteers with the organization, saying “The idea behind it, at risk of sounding lame, is just to give something back. It's hardly being Mother Teresa, but you know, it's all helping a good cause.” You can pick up the compilation at their website. The band has a short run of dates coming up this month, including a date opening for Dum Dum Girls - check out the dates below!
