Just over a year on from their debut single, Manchester fourpiece PINS are ready to release their first album 'Girls Like Us'. It's out on 30 September and promises to be a taut set of updated new wave, with a bit of 80s fuzz thrown in. Essentially, all that's good about music in one handy package.
As a taster, here's an exclusive stream of new track 'Get With Me', showing the all-girl band at their most powerful, riding a motorik rhythm through grinding guitars, snatches of echoing harmonies and a chorus that finds singer Faith Holgate claiming, "I can be anything you want me to be". Maybe she and they can, but the current shape will do just fine.
