PINS “Trouble”

On the heels of their successful second album, Wild Nightsand amidst another North American tour (supporting The Subways) Manchester five-piece PINS previously shared their dreamy track, Dazed By You. Now they’re back and they’ve shared their gritty and sultry video for the track Trouble. Released with the b-side I’LL GET MINE just in time for Record Store Day 2016 on limited edition 10″ Red Vinyl with a bonus remix by BERNARD + EDITH.
The imagery of the video is like a badass modern-day film noir, shot entirely in black and white. It stars the quintet and give an almost Andy Warhol-esque/the Velvet Underground vibe. It’s sinister yet playful and utterly stunning and mesmerizing. The track is littered with moody guitar riffs and a menacing bassline. It’s the perfect balance of the bands work, dreamy yet sulky.

Speaking to The Line of Best Fit, the band says of the video: “Trouble is about doing something that feels good even though it might be bad for you. We took a blacked out photography studio and used different props and lenses to reflect that notion. We channelled our darkest thoughts and started rolling. It’s dangerous, glitchy and distorted. You only ever get a glimpse. But you can’t help but watch.


Watch the video below.


This year has seen a packed out touring schedule for the band. Along with performing their own sold out headline shows, they have supported the likes of Sleater-Kinney, Drenge, Best Coast, Mythopeoia III: Legs, and will tour with Subways next. See tour dates below.

About Naomi (889 Articles)
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. Social Media: @youthquakermimi
