Ridiculously rad Manchester, UK, quartet PINS are back with a new, second album, Wild Nights, out next month and we're stoked to premiere the video for current single "Young Girls." Sonically it's indie-pop edged out with a feeling of questioning melancholy, and just a smidgen of menace, and from the second they hit the screen you wanna be part of their gang.
It's not just that they look good—Saint Laurent's Hedi Slimane is a firm fan—but even when they're lazing listlessly on a bed, or staring impassively down the barrel of the lens, or, you know, casually wiping blood off a baseball bat, they've got a fall-in-line-and-don't-fuck-with-us attitude that's magnetic.
"Filmed in Manchester and at favourite look out point 'The Edge' in Alderly Edge," explain PINS. "The video is the tale of four girls, thick as thieves. They are dreamers, they are bold and they are bonded by a secret. All for one and one for all.”
Meanwhile, director Amy Watson, had a very specific vision for this short: “I wanted to play around with the usual ‘girls just wanna have fun’ type of music video. You know, friendship, solidarity, road trips and all the usual tropes of girly bonding. I wanted to take that wholesomeness and push it to a weird place.”
Like we said, don't mess with these young girls.
