Glasgow based PINACT to release debut album May 19 on Kanine Records

By on February 19, 2015

pinactA 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. The band is able to effortlessly combine experimental, turn-it-up-to-11 guitar sounds with outstanding melodic awareness, despite their scarce lineup consisting of only guitarist/vocalist Corrie Gillies and drummer Chris McCrory.

The duo will be releasing their debut album Stand Still and Rot on May 19th via Kanine Records. The album (produced by the brilliant MJ of Hookworms) perfectly distills their live sound. It’s loud, it’s uncompromising, and yet it sounds pretty and considered. Including concert stalwarts like “Into the One,” “Brew”, and “Negative Thoughts and Jealousy” along with newer tracks like “The Beginning of the End” and debut single “Anxiety”, Stand Still is an aural crowd-surf and an alternative hit waiting to happen.

“A Scottish duo with fuzzy antidotes pouring out from the seams.” -DIY

Louder than two-pieces really ought to be, this duo pit melodic vocals against the fuzz and squeals of a battle-worn Fender Mustang, creating something heavy and frenetic.”  –NME
