Indie popsters PINS hail from Manchester, and as such are legally required to coat their hummable pop tunes with enough waved-out distortion to satisfy the strict requirements laid out by The Johnny Marr Act of 1986. PINS have been touring America pretty hard following the release of their acclaimed new album Wild Nights, and based on their sunbaked new video for "Dazed By You," they've grown fond of our open roads.

"We knew we would be driving coast to coast across America on tour, and were caught up in the romanticism of the road trip," says singer and guitarist Faith Vern. "We had seen the film Badlands just before we went and took some ideas from that too -- not just filming there but getting lost in the isolation and the giant landscapes."
