PINS unveil new video for 'Trouble' ahead their special Record Store Day release


Manchester five-piece PINS recently announced details of a brand new 10″, set for release for Record Store Day via Bella Union.

Today, they’ve also premiered the glitchy, distorted, video for ‘Trouble’.

“Sarah Jenny Johnson and Olivier Richomme have directed the clip, which is shot in striking black and white and full of intense close ups, which only serve to heighten the song’s sultry nature,” said TLOBF, who premiered the video.

The limited-edition red 10” vinyl release will also feature ‘I’ll Get Mine’ – another brand new track – and a remix of ‘Trouble’ by fellow Manchester band Bernard + Edith.

Trouble was recorded at Strangeway Studios with Martin Hurley and Daniel Broomhall, the place where the band recorded their first EP four years ago.

Faith Vern said: “There is a nice symmetry to it – we traveled to the other side of the earth to record our last album, toured here there and everywhere then ended up back at home in Manchester.

“It was weird to stand in the same spot to sing, thinking about everything that had happened between then and now.

“Trouble was written quickly in our rehearsal room. Lois played this Cramps-esque guitar part and we built it up from there – I thought the music was filthy and deserved some sexy words.”

Last year, PINS released second album Wild Nights via Bella Union. 2015 was also defined by a packed out touring schedule for the band supporting the likes of Sleater-Kinney, Drenge, Wire, Best Coast, Gang Of Four and Stealing Sheep.
