With influences ranging from Talking Heads to Tame Impala, The Tins craft masterfully layered jams that USA Today call “brilliant pop exuberance.” Today, the band releases new single “Friday Afternoon” via Yellow Year Records. Stream/Share “Friday Afternoon”
“Friday Afternoon” is a song inspired by an unfortunate event that happened to someone very close to guitarist Adam Stanley, its contagious merging of electronic and acoustic elements create a groove that belies its bittersweet lyrics, which describes the lengths that people will go to in order to escape from the mundanity of their everyday life. Stanley says, “While some find their outlet in genial pursuits, others rely on less savory solutions, costing them in ways they never expected.” The single cover art was created by Wes Tyrell, internationally renowned artist and president of the Association of Canadian Cartoonists.
Hailing from Buffalo NY, the trio has already released a number of records. The Tins’ first single, “The Green Room,” was chosen by Spotify creator Sean Parker as a staple of his Hipster International Playlist, and tapped as Spotify Staff Picks #2 Song of the Year. Since that point on, the Tins have worked with producers Joe Blaney (Modest Mouse, Prince, The Clash) and Ted Young (Kurt Vile, The Gaslight Anthem) and have garnered millions of plays online. The Tins are currently in rotation on SiriusXM Radio and have been licensed to several hit TV shows including Beverly Hills 90210 and Roadtrip Nation.
