PinUps can be traced back a few years ago to a five piece from Falmouth originating under the name Pastel Colours.
A change in personnel saw the band streamline down to a trio:- singer/guitarist Josh Gibbs, and the Baker brothers Jesse and Louis (Secret from Richard, Franko Fraize). A move in location to London and the story is complete.
"It was here that PinUps honed their sound into the upbeat and anarchic brand of post-pop that they peddle today. Merging together effervescent indie-pop with the skittering and spiky guitar hooks of traditional post-punk, the trio have carved a niche of their own. "70s art-rock and 80s post-punk, combined with a contemporary indie-pop twist”. Pin Ups manage to create something fun, fresh, fast and ultimately, their own."
"Pin Ups sound is both uncompromising and irresistible. Their single ‘You Make Me Feel So Sick’, produced by Rory Atwell (The Vaccines, Palma Violets, Childhood) exudes energy evident in the frenetic guitars and matched vocal delivery that carry the track through its three-and-a-half minutes, while earmarking Pin-Ups as not only one of the freshest and most exciting bands doing the rounds at present, but perhaps one of the most idiosyncratic as well. Expect to see much more of them soon but for now”- Louder than war
