Perhaps if Tom Petty were as good as Bruce Springstein and spent all his time listening to Jay Reatard he would sound like Needles//Pins. Under the fun fast paced finish of Needles//Pins lay gorgeous RnR hooks and a true sentiment that is sadly missing from many of their contemporaries and counter parts who’s lyrics betray just how much this whole practice is a deliberate study in fucking around. Needles//Pins throw out the bathwater. Under the delightful layers of heart racing skate rock hides a yoke of emotional consistency. These guys are most certainly the band to watch. They’re coming back to Edmonton on June 7th with The Mandates from Calgary and our own Energetic Action. It’s at Wunderbar (of course). DON’T MISS IT.
