It’s been awhile since we heard anything from The Pin-Ups (formerly known as The Pin-Up Girls). Now they’re back with a new single called “Can’t Stand Waiting Here”, and if it’s any indication, this is more than just a return to form for the band. “Can’t Stand Waiting Here” opens with an intro that brings to mind some of the best songs from 90s. When the boy-girl harmonies of Mondo Castro and Hiyasmin Neri kick in, it’s hard not to wonder if you’re stuck in a time warp/transported back in time or something.
And while the track is nostalgic for sure, it’s not just nostalgia for nostalgia’s sake. This kind of music is what The Pin-Ups do best. And there’s a sense of… youthful energy (for lack of a better term) that is apparent with every guitar chord and every part of the song. It’s approximately 4 minutes of catchy alternative rock goodness, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
Welcome back, The Pin-Ups!
