Pushpin - Folds

‘Pushpin’ push the envelope of song structure and texture, all in the space of three and a half minutes on ‘Folds’.



The South-London outfit’s debut single really packs a punch. From the first whistle, the growling, disorientating guitar and slick bass set the tempo, but when the vocals enter, the song takes a softer and more mellow guise. ‘Folds’ switches between these contrasting sections with ease, and still the band finds room for a synth interlude and an ethereal, downtempo outro. No second is wasted. Each part and sound has an intent, purpose, and most importantly, great execution.


Pushpin’s effortless merging of digital sampling and organic instrumentation is scarily mature for a first single. Their successful concoction of experimentation with structure, whilst maintaining a catchy pop nature nods to artists such as Alt-J or MGMT. for your first single to be a genre-hopping, radio-friendly yet melancholic post-punk infused banger, these guys must be something special indeed.
