Berlin-based alt pop trio The Major Pins present their debut single Robots on Monkey Records.

The Major Pins are German musician and songwriter Katharina Garden on piano and guitar, New York drummer Henry Grant and Paul B Keeves from Birmingham playing electric bass. From their humble beginnings The Major Pins have been wowing an increasing number of music lovers and are seeking to spread their wings.

The music video for Robots was directed by Nora Wetzel, choreographed by Saskia Oidtman and filmed at the legendary GDR broadcast studios in Berlin.

When writing the concept for the film The Major Pins chose the historically-charged heart of GDR propaganda productions to reflect the lyrics dealing with the justification of war and the control of mass media.

In contrast to this somewhat sombre setting, they decided to create a rather surreal scenery with bonbon colored costumes and let the clowns march! Thirty friends, fans and crazy cats appear in the video wearing original sportswear used by Eastern German national gymnasts sponsored by the costume rental Adlershofer Fundus in Berlin.

Robots is the first single to be released from the forthcoming debut album by The Major Pins due in May.
