Cat Velez - 14th May 2015

This new music video from Manchester girl band, Pins, for their latest track Young Girls directed by Amy Watson is about being young and bored in a dull town and searching for excitement. It features the four-piece band roaming the streets and parks of their town, fooling around, drinking beer, whiling away the day and night. However, there is a deeply dark twist to the tale... 

The video was shot using only one light to make it look as real as possible on locations across Greater Manchester. It was an all-female team on the shoot, which coincidentally happened on International Women’s Day and was very apt for a girl band music video, inspired by Thelma and Louise meets inner-city Manchester.

AMY WATSON:

I wanted to play around with the usual ‘girls just wanna have fun’ type of music video. You know - friendship, solidarity, road trips and all the usual tropes of girly bonding. I wanted to take that wholesomeness and push it to a weird place,
