Still on the heels of their successful second album Wild Nights, and amidst an extensive North American tour supporting The Subways, Manchester five-piece PINS have shared a dark, sultry video for track “Trouble.”
As the song title suggests-and in true PINS form-the video hints at darkness and danger while simultaneously emitting playfulness, style and addictive guitar work.
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.”
PINS earlier this year released their standout second album Wild Nights, receiving great acclaim across media in the UK and US. The album was recorded in Joshua Tree at Rancho De La Luna with Dave Catching (QOTSA, Eagles of Death Metal) and Hayden Scott, and mixed in New York with Ben Baptie at Atomic Sound NYC (Mark Ronson).
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 and Mythopeoia III: Legs.
