Pinact – “Seams”

Pinact – “Seams”

Pinact are a Glasgow punk band with major melodic songwriting gifts. On their debut album Stand Still And Rot, those instincts manifested something like Fidlar’s shout-along party music slathered in Dinosaur Jr.’s sonic sludge, but it appears they’ve cleaned up their sound a bit for sophomore album The Part That No One Knows. New single “Seams,” for example, is like a Blink-182 song ratcheted up to Buzzcocks tension levels and delivered with a power-pop touch befitting Weezer or Teenage Fanclub. Within that simple, straightforward framework, Corrie Gillies chronicles a relationship falling apart: “Nothing worthwhile should be easy/ I can see you looking through me/ Are you really getting what you need?” Anyone who appreciates an excellently executed pop song should check it out below.
