Video of the Moment #1652: PINS

By on Monday, 20th October 2014 at 6:00 pm
 

Manchester quartet PINS have followed up their cassette-format EP ‘Come Back’ with a video for its title track, a cover of The Belles 1966 garage rock classic. Our own Martin featured a stream of the track in his previous review of the EP, but the video adds a new dimension to PINS‘ quirky take on the song. Directed by Amy Watson, it takes an off-kilter, behind-the-scenes look at the sterile and artificial quality of bands in manufactured television appearances. As in Honeyblood‘s recent video for ‘Super Rat’, the pristinely made-up members of PINS eventually descend into chaotic destroying of desserts and the systematic ruin of their carefully coiffed image. Are these grunge rock girl bands trying to make a point or something?
