PINS – Coolest Band On The Planet Dropped New Sultry Track ‘PONYTAIL’….

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

10 March 2020

Manchester’s astounding PINS dropped another thrilling piece from their upcoming,
third album called ‘HOT SLICK’ which according to the band is influenced by some big electro acts from the past and present such as LCD Soundsystem, New Order, and synth punk pioneers Suicide. So far we danced to the stomping title track and the booming corker Bad Girls Forever.

And here’s new cut ‘PONYTAIL’“A song about going out at night and hitting the dancefloor. It’s got processed guitars, blippy keyboards, and a spare drum-machine rattle working for it.”

It’s another sickly sticky disco banger that should be played in all discotheques around
the globe. Sensual, sultry and totally addictive. It seems like PINS has become a kick-ass groove machine making me impatiently waiting for the new record. Without a shadow of
a doubt the coolest band on the planet right now.

Manchester’s Glamorous PINS Release New Groovy Disco Stomper ‘HOT SLICK’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

14 February 2020

So far the wonderful Manchester ladies PINS released two exquisite guitar pop albums Girls Like Us  (2013) and my favourite Wild Nights  (2015), one EP Bad Thing  (with a track called Aggrophobe featuring living legend Iggy Pop, in return Pins did backing vocals on Pop‘s 2019 single James Bond) and splendiferous protest single Serve The Rich both issued in 2017

Today the outspoken feminists launched superb single ‘HOT SLICK’, produced by The
Kills’ Jamie Hince with whom they worked together previously. It’s a spicy disco stomper.
A sickly sticky synth-driven killer track. An electrifying groove with an irresistible beat and
a sensual “get away, get away, I’ve got to get away” chorus with spicy echoes from Donna Summer‘s I Feel Love and Robert Palmer’s Addicted To Love. This dance floor earworm is
a blissful standout that will boost your mood instantly and will make your hips sway.
