PINS + ĠENN +Mangö
Pins return to Brighton with their new album ‘Hot Slick’ after a sold out show in Feb. This time they are taking on October and the perfect setting of The Green Door Store (early show)
Since the release of Girls Like Us in 2013, female trio PINS has exuded strength in their danceable alternative post-punk transmissions and earned the trust, endorsement, and creative blessings of rock royalty such as Iggy Pop, with whom they collaborated on 2017’s The Bad Thing EP. 2015’s Wild Nights earned widespread critical acclaim including an Album of the Week nod from Stereogum and profiles in Harper’s Bazaar, Interview Magazine, The Guardian, DAZED, and i-D. In recent years, PINS toured on both sides of the pond alongside everyone from Sleater-Kinney and Warpaint to Best Coast and The Subways.
Their latest album ‘Hot Slick’ was released via HAUS OF PINS in 2020. Bandcamp: https://wearepins.bandcamp.com/album/hot-slick
‘“A raucously delicious and danceable anthem for bad girls, female empowerment, and unity, along with an infectious chorus that is impossible to not spell along with.” – Billboard on “Bad Girls Forever”
“Totally danceable” – FLOOD on “Ponytail”
“It combines disco smoothness and crunchy textures with a frantic hook.” – Stereogum on “Hot Slick”
As befitting a band who take their name from the Maltese word for frenzy, ĠENN thrive amongst chaos. “Craziness follows us,” laughs lead singer Leona Farrugia, alluding to the quartet’s colourful history, which has so far featured robbery, legal disputes, long-distance collaborations, and three members of the band relocating to Brighton from Malta. Guitarist Janelle Borg concurs. “[ĠENN] could have been a support group, but we decided to make music instead,” she deadpans.
Jokes aside, it’s this unique outlook and tight-knit gang mentality that make ĠENN such a thrilling proposition musically, as evidenced on March’s Liminal EP. Released through London-based indie Everything Sucks Music, the six-song collection sees Leona, Janelle and their bandmates Leanne Zammit (bass) and Sofia Rosa Cooper (drums) contrasting searing post-punk missives with more allusive meditations cocooned in psychedelic textures.

“An experimental quartet blending psychedelia and jazz fusion, challenging new sonic possibilities”. This Brighton based quartet provide a glorious leap back to traditional 60s psych rock with a more modernised twist of alternative rock. Their chaotic sound combines face melting guitars with tight in the pocket jazz rhythms and grooves.
SLANT (DJ SET):
4 fifths of Brighton based glam powerhouse SLANT will be providing a collection of banging tunes throughout the course of the night. Keeping the party going with their exquisite tastes in dance ridden Indie and alternative.
SLANT are an inter-galactic powerhouse. Drawing glam-rock back out of the ether and merging it with a riot grrrl energy, in 2020 SLANT released their debut single ‘Haircut’ and follow up alt-pop/disco track ‘La Danse’. Com’n join us!
