EXCLUSIVE: Pynch 'Tin Foil' Video Premiere

EXCLUSIVE: Pynch ‘Tin Foil’ Video Premiere

Today, we are debuting the new video from Pynch for their fantastic, perky new single ‘Tin Foil’ with its guitar hooks, addictive percussion and witty, infectious vocals, burrowing towards an escape from the crisis that is all around us. It’s lifted from their forthcoming album Howling at a Concrete Moon due 14th April. Watch the video below, directed by Spencer and Scott Enock.

Of ‘Tin Foil’, band leader Spencer Enock shares, “When we play live I always jokingly introduce ‘Tin Foil’ as being about conspiracy theories but really, I think it’s about how complex and overwhelming the modern world can be.

It feels like we’ve been in one form of crisis or another for my entire adult life and this song is about our over-exposure to that level of stimulation and the need to escape it all and ‘get lost forever.

It’s definitely one of our most upbeat and irreverent song so it feels right to be releasing it at the beginning of spring and just before the album comes out”.

Co-produced by Andy Ramsay of Stereolab, Howling at a Concrete Moon is an album that discusses both the personal and political, exploring what it has felt like to be young and coming of age in post-austerity Britain.

From working with Dan Carey and Speedy Wunderground through a speculative demo submission (He simply replied “I fucking love this”) to setting up their own label and touring the UK and Europe in a Skoda Fabia, the band have been on somewhat of an odyssey in their first few years together.

 Pynch serves up a heady concoction of motorik beats (Julianna Hopkins), driving basslines (Scott Enock), soaring guitars (Spencer Enock) and melancholic synths (James Rees) to create a sound that is steeped in indie and electronic history yet still vitally present. Their fondness for home-recording and sonic experimentation shine throughout the record, as glitchy synth textures regularly mingle with distorted guitars over the enduring tick of a drum machine. Spencer’s observations on society and the human condition are often delivered in the disarmingly humorous way that has now become a key feature of the band’s identity. This blurring between cynicism and sincerity runs throughout the record,
