PRESENTED BY LOUISE HOUGHTON
PINS are Faith Holgate, Anna Donigan, Lois Macdonald and Sophie Galpin. They started playing together in early 2011, with Galpin replacing the original drummer in February 2013. PINS self-released their first songs (A. Eleventh hour / AA. Shoot you) through their own label 'Haus of PINS' in May 2012 along with a debut video for 'Eleventh Hour' directed by Sing. J. Lee. The tape sold out within a few hours and the video received a great deal of attention for the band. Later that year PINS worked with Bella Union to release their 'Luvu4lyf' EP on 10" glitter vinyl -- now sold out (500). The EP was followed by their first UK tour, and the band later signed with Bella Union, going on to release their first Album 'Girls Like Us'. 'Girls Like Us' was also the lead track from the album, the video to which has had 76,000 views.
Since then PINS have toured extensively through the UK and have reached out into Europe playing at Fleche D'Or in Paris, Beursschouwburg in Belgium and Nox Orae Festival in Switzerland to name a few. Pins have supported the likes of Best Coast, Savages and Mikal Cronin -- playing of crowds up to 1500 people. They have also supported Dum Dum Girls, Warpaint and Crocodiles.
PINS mix together post punk, fuzzed up garage, and rock and roll. They have created a distinct sound, and secured their place in the burgeoning Manchester new music scene.
