PINS – Botanique Club, Brussels – September 24. 2015
PINS are five ‘we-do-it-our-way‘ pop punk girls from Manchester who released their excellent second album ‘Wild Nights‘ last June. They already have a huge following in England and are now touring the European continent to show why they are going be
huge in the near future.
They played Brussels supporting American psych rockers Crocodiles. So, how good are PINS? Trust me, their mix of muscled pop and melodic punk is highly addictive and the down-to-earth lyrics are recognizable for any young troubled human being on this planet. They have all the qualities a band needs to reach pole position :
18 Karat coolness
Here’s ‘Young Girls’ – First single from second album – Pop brilliance…
That other Manchester band – the one with the two brothers – shouldn’t bother to get back together. PINS is far more than just a cool alternative. The second album is proof of their growing songwriting skills and you can’t resist them live when they turn up the volume.
Smoking live rendition of new single ‘Dazed By You’…
They rocked Brussels big time and are definitely on their way to conquer Europe.
On the other hand I hope they won’t polish their sound in order to rush fast forward
to the lucrative mainstream. It’s their cutting, mean side that makes them quite special and irresistibly attractive !…
Here’s ‘Wild Nights‘ in full…
