Everyone is crushing on the distorted pop these days, and I guess I’m a part of the crowd. The latest discovery is that of UK trio Pens, and they just dropped an excellent DIY green-screen-ish video on us for the awesomely fuzzed out track “High In The Cinema”. True to the lo-fi, this band is less like The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, who are undoubtedly pop, and more like the lo-fi female version of punksters Japandroids. The video is simple, fun and extremely colorful. The song, as you can probably guess, is the same, and I’m sure I’m not the only one to dub it brilliant.
“High In The Cinema” is off Pens’ upcoming De Stijl LP, Hey Friends, What You Doing?, out September 15.
