PINS have a fascination with the past. The all-girl gang recorded their upcoming debut album, Girls Like Us, on tape and filmed their latest music video, for recent single "Get With Me," using a Super 8 camera.
"We are a little captivated with analog equipment," says guitarist Lois MacDonald, who shot and directed the new clip. "We love the rawness and tangibility of doing things this way."
As a song, "Get With Me" bears resemblance to the Dum Dum Girls: It's a driving hip-shaker that blends post-punk's sharp angles with surf rock's loose harmonies. As a video, "Get With Me" catches PINS "having a great time doing what we love," MacDonald says, "which evidently includes dancing on a beach in the English sun. It's infectious."
