TRACK REVIEW: Pity Sex / Pin A Star

The recently released single, “Pin a Star” is another glimpse of their upcoming album, White Hot Moon (Out April 29th on Run For Cover Records), and if the whole album lives up to the quality of the singles, it’ll definitely be a pretty good album.

The song is reminiscent of early 90’s shoegaze with light and floating vocals on top of rough and distorted guitar and I love that about it. It’s not an entirely shoegaze song though; you can hear many other influences scattered about it and in every note and every second of guitar feedback. It’s a beautiful song that really introduces us to the possibilities of the upcoming album.

Pity Sex are really starting to develop as a band and how their sound is really developing into something full, complete, and beautiful. I’m pretty excited for the upcoming album and this single is just pushing that momentum. With the new album and a tour lineup that is a dream team, this year is going to be a great one for Pity Sex.

OVERALL, “PIN A STAR” GETS A 7.5/10
