Track 06 from the 'Home Demos' EP is out now on all major streaming services. We absolutely love this tune by The Vapors, and after including it in our live set for a few months decided to record it in 2018 with our boy Scott Docherty at his private studio in North London. We’d finished up recording ‘Do You Hate Yourself Yet?’ and decided to smash this one out with the leftover studio time. The idea was to catch it as lively as possible so we set a maximum of three takes, and had Scott put on these flashy lights and dance about to conjure up some weirdness. He's the master. We overdubbed the vocals over a huge bag of cans later that evening and what you get it is a weird, lively version of an already weird, lively song.
It's by far the creasiest session we’ve ever done. Love you Scotty xx

Opting to work with up-and-coming London producer Ric James (Foals, YOWL, Two Tribes) on their latest single, ‘Lazy’ sees Pin Ups at their most ambitious, ditching the ‘3-and-a-half minute radio song’ template for an 8-and-a-half minute sonic adventure.
