PIN ME DOWN, Russell Lissack (Bloc Party) & Milena Mepris (ex Black Moustache), Debut Album, April 19th

Pin Me Down is a musical collaboration between Bloc Party guitarist Russell Lissack and vocalist Milena Mepris (formerly of the electro-punk band Black Moustache).

The pair met several years ago when Milena’s old band supported Bloc Party in New York. Having discovered a shared love of guitars and 80s artists such as Kate Bush, Cyndi Lauper and New Order the pair decided to explore new frontiers together. Pin Me Down fuse energetic pop melodies with razor-sharp guitar sounds – creating “apocalyptic pop” as Mépris likes to call it.

The eponymously titled debut album was recorded by Alex Elena and Daniel Lingren in London and New York throughout the course of 2009 and is released on April 19th.
