Artist / Pinact

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. The trio comprised of Corrie Gillies (guitar/vocals), Lewis Reynolds (drummers) and Jon Arbuthnott (bass) combines experimental, turn-it-up-to-11 guitar sounds with outstanding melodic awareness. 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, playing house parties and dingy cellars, it was 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 released their debut album produced by MJ of Hookworms, Stand Still and Rot, in the spring of 2015 via the Brooklyn based indie Kanine Records. For 2017 Pinact has readied their follow up, The Part That No One Knows.
