My UK vacation this May was made even sweeter when I learned I was going to be there during The Great Escape Festival in Brighton. It was then put over the top when I learned one of my favorite bands, Manchester's PINS would be performing not just once, but twice during the three day event. The band's debut LP Girls Like Us is still in constant rotation around the Aimless Skylarking headquarters, and doubt that'll change any time soon. That is until their 2nd album, Wild Nights, is released into the wild June 8th on Bella Union.
A few weeks back, the band debuted the attitude drenched lead track from the album, 'Too Little Too Late'. Now they're back with a decidedly more serious and introspective offering, 'Young Girls'. The composition is relaxed, and could have taken a fun turn, but never does, there's a dark melancholic vein running through the song. When Faith wistfully asks, "What will we do when our dreams come true?", we know a rhetorical question when we hear one because dreamers never stop dreaming. Keep on dreaming! Stream the captivating 'Young Girls' below.
