“Got It Bad” by PINS

On the heels of their second album Wild Nights, Manchester five-piece PINS have released the video for their track “Got It Bad”. With this video, PINS stick to their strengths, invoking feelings of a hazy summer night complete with sparklers, cigarettes and a youthful sense of adventure. It was shot in the Northern Quarter and Ancoats districts of the band’s hometown by Sarah Jenny Johnson. “The song is wonderfully melancholic but its also, essentially, a love song so I wanted this to reflect in the way it was shot,” says the director. “Dipping in and out of focus constantly, blurry lights, handheld camera – almost “drunk” in a way. Drunk in love.”

Faith says; “This is the song where when we were recording, I said to Dave (Catching) ‘can we make it more Velvet Underground?’ He said ‘sure thing’ and that’s just what we did. Got It Bad is my favourite song to play live, it’s the only song I have chance to breath and take it all in”

This year has seen a busy year for the band supporting the likes of Sleater-Kinney, Drenge and Wire, as well as shows with Best Coast, Gang Of Four and Stealing Sheep.

PINS earlier this year released their second album Wild Nights, The album was recorded in Joshua Tree at Rancho De La Luna with Dave Catching (QOTSA, Eagles of Death Metal) and Hayden Scott, and mixed in New York with Ben Baptie at Atomic Sound NYC (Mark Ronson).
