PENS. What can I say about PENS? I use one every day and I don't really have any feelings or emotions for them. That was, until, I discovered a band who share the name of said writing instrument device: PENS. Now what do I think of PENS? They're fucking awesome. Period.
Consisting of 3 girls; Melia, Helen and Steff, PENS must be the first all-girl lo-fi noise power pop band I've ever heard, and I like what I hear. Instead of the usual, hipster-garabe-esque sound bands and guys such as Wavves and No Age tend to stick to, PENS create actual catchy, poppy, danceable noise that is actually semi-understandable and fun to listen to. Plus, they'll take you to bagel town, which is always a bonus. I like bagels.
PENS are currently on tour with Friendship and Wavves in the UK and recording their as yet untitled debut LP to be released this year.
