Our Track of the Day today comes from our favourite Manchester gang, PINS. Built on a passion for punk and post-punk the band of brethren are a force to be reckoned with and ‘Got It Bad’ proves it.
Taken from their latest LP Wild Nights the follow up to 2013’s Girls Like Us ‘Got It Bad’ is a slowed down, melt-in-your-mouth track with guts and glory aplenty. It matches the video with focus dipping in and out and transcends the video with every heavy slam of the strings to accompany the softly tousled vocals.
The band’s sound is steeped in their hometown and the inevitable grey colour comparisons are in fact compliments to their ability to depict their own reality. ‘Got It Bad’ does this with that eternal favourite theme of the songwriter; love.
The juxtaposition of sounds marries perfectly with this topic adding a harsh reality to every sweet and tender note. PINS are still one of the hottest acts in the country.
