A lot of bands are compared to the likes of Sonic Youth, Nirvana and Dinosaur Jr., but very few are capable of living up to the billing. Enter Pinact, whom has harnessed the spirit of Glasgow’s music scene incredibly. Despite being small in numbers, the two-piece combines experimental, turn-it-up-to-11 guitar sounds with outstanding melodic awareness. Comprised of Corrie Gillies (guitar/vocals) and Chris McCrory (drums), Pinact is unique in a landscape full of duos. Imagine if you will, Lou Barlow having the guitar sound of Lee Ranaldo. Imagine if The Vaselines listened to Lightning Bolt. An intensely chaotic sound that wraps sheer pop song writing in Melvins-esque fuzz, a kiss and a punch.
Embracing the DIY scene by putting on their own shows, touring almost constantly in the UK, playing house parties and dingy cellars as well as the likes of New York’s CMJ, it’s been a busy start for the band. With an attitude comparable to bands of the early US hardcore punk scene, a hard-working ethos and a willingness to play as many shows as possible, Pinact is a force for the future. Having released numerous songs on cassettes, 7”s, and vinyl compilations including the ‘Art Reeks’ project in collaboration with UK labels Art is Hard and Reeks of Effort, Pinact is ready to unleash their debut album, Stand Still and Rot, May 19th via the Brooklyn based indie Kanine Records.
