The four-piece girl-band from Manchester, England have a new album, titled Wild Nights, coming out June 9th in America. PINS is made up of Faith Holgate (vocals/guitar), Lois McDonald (guitar), Anna Donigan (bass), and Sophie Galphin (Drums). They are a powerful group and are soon to take the world over, one listener at a time.
The eleven-track album contains many different sounds and rhythms that are sure to peak an interest to listeners all around. The first song, Baby Bhangs, starts off with beautiful guitar riffs and has a lovely solo later in. The second song, Young Girls, is a bit mellower and seems to match the lyrics quite well. The fourth track, Oh Lord, reminds me of SOKO due to the vocals and drums. I absolutely love the sound behind the sixth song, Dazed by You, and its lyrics seem to go right along beside it – it seems to resemble Circa Waves a bit, with its costal vibes. Got It Bad slows things down and makes you focus on the story behind the lyrics. My absolute favorite track from the album is the ninth song called If Only because it reminds you have a summer road trip to the beach. It has a positive melody, but quite a sad story behind it, and it has the ability to make you want to cruise around with your windows down. Overall, this album is unique due to each song’s diversity, and it displays the unique, powerful sound PINS are able to create.
Make sure to go out and get their new album, Wild Nights, on June 9th when it comes out.
