Pity Sex Pitilessly Indulge Your Nostalgia With ‘Pin A Star’

The new track will appear on their forthcoming LP, 'White Hot Moon,' out April 29

The members of Ann Arbor quartet Pity Sex are not ones to shy away from unabashed, instantly gratifying ’90s revivalism. Their sound is awash with warm guitar, backed by rollicking drumbeats and dreamy, lackadaisical vocals straight out of My Bloody Valentine or Cocteau Twins.

“Pin A Star,” the newest single off their forthcoming LP, White Hot Moon, retains that lovable, bygone fuzz as a foundation to showcase singer Britty Drake’s wonderfully forlorn, heart wrenching vocals. Yes, the nostalgia is undeniable, but the overall effect – the group’s effortless arrangement and instrumentation – takes the sound into the 21st century, and recalls some of today’s best indie acts, like Mitski, and Deep Sea Diver. We don’t know whether we should dance to the beat, or stand captivated as Drake croons: “Don’t waste your time / ‘cause it won’t wait for you.”

Maybe we should take her cue, and get moving. Listen to “Pin A Star” below, and check out White Hot Moon when it drops April 29 via Run For Cover Records.
