NEEDLES // PINS - Good Night, Tomorrow LP
Vancouver power-trash trio Needles//Pins began in 2009 as an excuse for three friends to hang out. 2017 sees the band release its third LP Good Night, Tomorrow. The record is a progression both musically and lyrically from their older material while still maintaining the hook-centric philosophy of their previous releases. The band has become legendary in Vancouver for wild shows and gruff but catchy punk rock melodies. It draws from classic punk roots like the wiry pop of The Buzzcocks and the gravely anthems of Stiff Little Fingers, but has a unique West Coast approach that would align itself with the catchiest of the Lookout! or Dirtnap Records catalog.
