You don't hear about Manchester bands as much as you once did, but four-piece PINS are direct descendents of Manc rabble-rousers The Fall (in sneery attitude), with a scratchy dose of C-'86 style pop hooks. The band's debut album, Girls Like Us, came out in the UK back in the fall and will get a North American release via Bella Union US on March 4. We've got the premiere of their new video, "Waiting For The End," which has fun with the karaoke concept, and you can watch it along with a few other videos and streams in this post.

PINS will be making the trip across the Atlantic soon for SXSW. No word on whether they'll be playing other cities while here but stay tuned.

Video and streams below...

Could this be a first...a BV post about an all-female band with no sexist or misogynistic comments?!?

Took a listen, guess they're okay. Nothing memorable. Not surprised.

Fuck you anonymous cocks who post saying shit like "nothing memorable"
You are so devoid of anything vaguely exceptional that you don't even have a name you can remember.
I think these kids PINS are fantastic, and I know they will be having fun and playing rock n roll long after your penis has shrivelled up and retracted into your feeble anonymous body.

@4:51 There is nothing sexist or misogynistic about stating you would have sex with a woman, in a band or not.

- cis male

that said, I would engage in coitus with all of them.

9:39 Why are you getting mad just because someone gave their opinion? That's what commenting is for. That being said: Pins are very generic, which is why they must market themselves as "female band" to get any attention.

haha you jerk ringo.
'market themselves as 'female band'' -So youre an expert now on how theyre marketing themselves! i didnt see any headline like 'all-girl teen band from manchester' like some other bands would use. Your comment and your penis is very generic and you have to post on BV to get any attention. Me, i am surrounded by pussy and drugs. Get a life drongo.
