A pop band? What am I doing? Am I trying to ruin everything?
No. Pin Up are a band from Montreal, Quebec. Out of the realm I usually listen to, they still brought a smile to my face.
The singer is comparable (but nothing like) Paramore. Musically, they stick to generic tropes that you might hear in 90’s rock, but they keep it sounding original.
The drummer is a beast. He comes up with very unexpected hooks at times. The song “The Wedding Song” is a great example of this. The basic rhythm is followed, but the drums are busy. It is almost jarring, but it works in the strangest way.
