PINS – Wild Nights

“You get a lot of shit for being in a girl band,” PINS’ singer-guitarist Faith Holgate told The Line of Best Fit three years ago. The unfortunate truth is that, even in 2015, being an all-female rock ‘n’ roll-group is still something of a novelty. On Wild Nights, PINS invoke plenty of comparisons to forebears like Sleater-Kinney and Hole, but maybe the clearest sign of progress in the genre is that when anger crops up in their work, it doesn’t feel strictly political. They aren’t mad at the patriarchy as a whole, just the deadbeat dude that “looked so good at first, when I didn’t know your name” (from “Too Little, Too Late”). Wild Nights is in many ways an ode to partying, but that’s not as frivolous as it sounds. The album simply revels in the joys of youth and independence.
