PINS “Dazed By You”

PINS hail from Manchester and they are Faith Vern (vocals/guitar), Anna Donigan (bass), Lois Macdonald (guitar), Sophie Galpin (drums) & Kyoko Swann (synths/guitar). They were on tour in America when they filmed the video for their dreamy track, Dazed By You, which is a hazy almost SoCal tune with a vintage aesthetic filmed with a Super 8 across America. The guitar riffs and drumming towards the end sounds like a crashing wave, making it all the more perfect summer tune.

About the video, the band had this to say… “We made this video when we were on tour in America, driving across strange landscapes and visiting unusual places,” The band explains. “The filming was done when we drove 2,500miles, from Seattle to Michigan in a week. We stopped off at a natural hot spring on Kyoko’s birthday, detoured though the Badlands, pulled over in the middle of nowhere to check out some old abandoned cars, and found an old petrol station in Jackpot, Nevada. The video was filmed on Super8, then drawn on, scratched and burned afterwards.

The song is the perfect track for those endless summer nights, which is sad to say is coming to a close with Labor Day right around the corner, so grab your best friends and make those last summer days count. Watch the video below.

The most important thing to know about me is that I'm a melomaniac and shameless fangirl. I am addicted to concerts, they are my sanctuary and safe haven. When I'm on the front row on the barricade of a concert... I feel that I am truly home. I'm also a proud and happy vinyl crate-digger. Whether it's searching for vinyl at flea markets, garage sales, vintage shops... I am a sucker for the crackling of a good record when the needle drops on a turntable. I am a true Cancer with Moon in Cancer and ascending in Pisces. Also, loves dogs (especially my son Elvis) and quality food porn pictures. Social Media: @youthquakermimi
