Four girls against the world...

One of 2013's most impressive newcomers, PINS are showing no signs of slackening the pace.

Debut album 'Girls Like Us' was labelled "earnest, intense, and gothically compelling" by Clash, while subsequent tour dates have seen the band take their noir-pop sound across the country.

So when SXSW came a-calling, the Texan event should've known what to expect. Breezing into the United States for a whirlwind trip, PINS took a camera along for the ride.

Capturing the momentum, the sheer velocity of being a new band at SXSW, the resulting video is also a sweet insight into a band just coming to terms with their own ability.

Watch it below.


But that's not all... PINS have been busy since their return, re-recording two early tracks for a special Record Store Day release.

'Shoot You' b/w 'Eleventh Hour' will be pressed onto black heart shaped vinyl, but you'd better be quick - the release is strictly limited to just 500 copies.

Looking ahead, PINS have confirmed the following shows:

18 London Repeater Festival (Shacklewell Arms)
19 Sheffield Detestival (Queens Social Club)
19 Manchester Soup Kitchen (Record Store Day event)

1 Liverpool The Art Academy (Sound City)
3 Manchester Road House w/ Dum Dum Girls
4 Manchester Peel Hall (Sounds From The Other City Festival – Now Wave Stage)
