HIYA LADIES! X
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN GOING FOR NOW?
Faith - "The current formation of PINS has been since January this year. We got a new drummer, Sophie. Before that I can't remember."
WHAT ARE THE PINS GIRLS WORKING ON AT THE MINUTE?
Faith - "Singing, dancing, pretending to be film stars and we've just finished recording an LP, it'll be out later in the year."
WHAT'S THE BEST GIG YOU'VE EVER PLAYED?
Faith - "We played a Christmas show at the Bunker in Manchester last December, that was special. I have a good time wherever we play but the ones we curate ourselves stand out more to me. Saying that, we opened for British Sea Power a couple of weeks ago, it was Sophie's second show with us and we played a bunch of new songs to hundreds of strangers, it was really fun!"
Lois - " Yeah I think the Christmas one for me too. All the Bunker shows have been amazing, it was cool to be able to put our own."
HOW DO FEEL ABOUT PLAYING DOT TO DOT? HAVE YOU PLAYED BEFORE?
Faith - "This is our first time, we're playing all three cities so I'm looking forward to it."
Anna - " I've been a couple of times. If I think back to the first time I went and I was dreaming of being in a band... I guess things have gone pretty well since then to be playing all three festivals days this year!"
WHAT OTHER BANDS ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO WATCH AT D2D?
Faith - "Swim Deep come up in our conversations a lot for one reason or another so I'd like to see them in real life. Other than that, I don't know. I like Best Friends so I'll try and catch them."
Lois - "Yeah excited, hoping to see Deap Vally and Wolf Alice."
Anna - "Hoping to catch Deap Vally, Lucy Rose and The 1975. I went to school with those boys and haven't seen them since the Drive like I do/ Big Sleep Days."
WHAT'S PLANNED FOR THE FUTURE AND WHERE WILL PINS BE AFTER THE FESTIVAL?
Faith - "We have a couple more shows in the UK and EU left after Dot to Dot then a few festivals in the Summer, come and see us!"
Lois - "End of the Road at the end of August should be cool."
WHAT IS YOUR FESTIVAL FASHION MUST HAVE?
Faith - "Sunglasses"
Lois - "Hotpants"
Anna - "A kigu"
WHAT IS THE BEST AND WORST THING YOU EVER BOUGHT AT A FESTIVAL?
Faith - "Best and worst thing would be mushroom chocolate"
Lois - "Vintage shirt for £5 best and worst is Fosters"
Anna - "The best and worst thing I considered buying at a festival was a 'Nobody knows I'm a Lesbian t-shirt."
WHAT IS THE BEST THING YOU'VE FOUND IN A VINTAGE STORE?
Faith - "I got some really cute shoes from COW last year, I wore them until they fell off my feet. Apart from that I tend to collect boys t-shirts."
Lois - "Loads of things.. Gonna go with my fringed shirt though."
Anna - "My huge black fur coat from Ryan Vintage in Manchester. I lived in it, it kept me toasty on two visits to Iceland in Winter. Also I like that people nuzzle into me like a cat. Cute."
