By Caitlin White / May 27, 2015 - 12:09 pm

After the sulky brooding of initial single “Too Little Too Late” and the dreamy flurry of “Young Girls” PINS are somewhere in between the two for their third single “Molly.” Casual drug joke references aside, the song is a moody, suggestive track that broods by on a bubbling guitar that eventually hijacks the song.
