Manchester all-female four-piece PINS have just released a new 7″ in the UK for ‘Too Little Too Late’. The B-side to the 7″ is a cover of The Misfits ‘Hybrid Moments’, a track the band also perform live, which was recorded for Part Time Punks and mixed by Josiah Mazzaschi. PINS’ Faith Vern describes it as “a simple and perfect pop song! We started to play it live to make everyone dance, we recorded it with Part Time Punks and gave it a PINS stamp with lots of choir girl harmonies.”
PINS have announced the release of their new album Wild Nights on June 9th. Recorded in Joshua Tree at Rancho De La Luna with Dave Catching (QOTSA, Eagles of Death Metal) and Hayden Scott, and mixed in New York with Ben Baptie at Atomic Sound NYC (Mark Ronson), PINS second album Wild Nights will be released through Bella Union on June 9th.
The video for the first single ‘Too Little Too Late’ sees PINS, dressed exclusively by Saint Laurent, cut between visuals of screaming and swearing girls amidst overflowing glitter and powder, ‘Too Little Too Late’ is the perfect taster of the bands new album. Opening with a fearless drumbeat and heavy bassline, the track slows into a sparse momentary instrumental before reverting back to Faith’s alluring vocal and finally stampeding heavily into a fuzzed up sound clash of guitars and drums.
