Notching up gigs in disused office blocks and hotel basements to    name a few, it was with little incredulity PINS should record their    debut EP in an industrial estate. A natural confines for the    chilling thrum of near whispered vocals, gutter-grimed guitars and    the tribal, thumping percussion. Pins- whilst steeped in the    entrancing abrasion of their local Mancunian heritage, bring    something new to the foreground, something unique.   

    Exploring themes of heartache and existentialism, the group put out    their debut single Eleventh Hour/Shoot You through the band’s own    label, Haus of Pins on gold cassette, selling out within a day.

    This new EP delivers on the scintillating promise of their hyped    live shows and acclaimed debut release – offering four tracks of    oscillating, reverb-drenched noise, with a decidedly poppy edge.     Released on limited edition 10″ vinyl via Bella Union on 1st October    2012.
