PINS are Faith Vern (vocals/guitar), Anna Donigan (bass), Lois Macdonald (guitar) and Sophie Galpin (drums).
Speaking about the video, director Amy Watson said “I wanted to play around with the usual ‘girls just wanna have fun’ type of music video. You know - friendship, solidarity, road trips and all the usual tropes of girly bonding. I wanted to take that wholesomeness and push it to a weird place.”
This ‘weird place’ is reflected in a Thelma & Louise-esque twist. PINS’ Faith Vern said “The 'Young Girls' video is the tale of four girls, thick as thieves. They are dreamers, they are bold and they are bonded by a secret."
PINS recently announced their new album Wild Nights. 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), it will be released through Bella Union on 8th June.
The Manchester four-piece previewed songs from their new album at three sold out shows in February, while more recently they supported Sleater-Kinney, Drenge and Wire on their separate UK and EU tours. They performed at Fred Perry Sub-Sonic Live in late 2014, supporting The Fall at The Garage in London. Watch footage from the live show below.
