TV Pins

TV Pins are a 5-piece band from London and the West Midlands, delivering vocal harmony drenched sounds of West coast Americana with distinctively British avant- garde song writing.

They share a love of keyboard grooves and a fusion of styles from 70’s americana, classic British new wave, 60’s psychedelia and hook-laden power pop. The band combine in the pop songs flavours of americana, alt- pop songs, keyboard grooves and radio friendly harmonic rock with a spiky edge.

Comprising a unique blend of heritage and attitude, warm yet spiky tunes, TV Pins sound like an updated version of that classic band you’d forgotten how much you loved.

Nifty arrangements, big harmonies and a sound that echoes iconic bands like ELO and Supertramp are sprinkled with 90s nostalgia reminiscent of Crowded House.

Songwriters Duncan & Miles played in the 1990s Busking pop phenomenon, Bean and toured in Canada, Australia & Europe making huge waves on the Fringe, Cabaret and Music festival circuits. They performed on TV shows and released singles that lead to supports with big 90s acts e.g. Blur

Miles went on to be an award-winning composer and arranger in his own right writing for Film and major events in Australia.

Simon, the bass guitarist and co-writer founded one of the worlds most lauded tribute bands, The Smyths and for many years has toured internationally and become known for sparkling live performances. He has also written and played with other artists and songwriters across Europe including James Clarke Five, Charlie Grant and Lopez.
