Track Of The Day #362: PINS – Lost Lost Lost

Pins-press-2013-300x265

Eagerly anticipated – around our gaff anyway – is the début long playing platter Girls Like Us from the PINS which is due for record store action at the tail end of September via Bella Union, released ahead of that event is a little sneak teaser entitled ’Lost Lost Lost’ which succinctly nails the quartet’s cold wave persona.

Framed upon a dulling ceremonial clang of a Joy Division-esque bass line underpinning its minimalist post punk howl, PINS astutely prowl a hollowed and edgy axis that veers ever so closely to controller. controller at their most primitive and echoes the kind of positive punk birthing that saw the likes of The March Violets and Blood and Roses grace the knowing turn tables of the days attuned cognoscenti, add in a taste flavouring of The Raincoats and the tribal growl of The Slits and you have yourself a sparsely gnawing lovechild that even its mother Siouxsie would be proud of.
