We named PINS’ single “Young Girls” one of the 5 Best Songs Of The Week back in April, taking note of their young/wild/free and listless attitude. The song will be released on PINS’ sophomore album, Wild Nights, which is due out next month. The new video for “Young Girls” finds the Manchester-based band in their hometown, giddily drinking in bedrooms and public parks, looking like well-dressed, bored teens. Director Amy Watson told Noisey about the tropes found throughout the video:
I wanted to play around with the usual “girls just wanna have fun” type of music video. You know, friendship, solidarity, road trips and all the usual tropes of girly bonding. I wanted to take that wholesomeness and push it to a weird place.
Sure enough, the women of PINS end up kidnapping a man clad in a leather jacket, forcing him into the trunk of their car, and murdering him… with a baseball bat. This video rules, if you can stomach it. Watch below.
Wild Nights is out 6/9 via Bella Union.
