With influences ranging from The Kinks and Badfinger to Animal Collective and Peter Bjorn and John, Buffalo, New York three-piece The Tins craft tight, masterfully layered songs that PopMatters calls “all the right sounds and all the right feelings.” Their new EP, Young Blame, shows the band’s evolution while continuing along the successful path they forged with Life’s a Gas, their 2012 full-length LP. Young Blame explores themes of movement, says the band: “moving forward, moving on, moving into the unknown, regardless of the consequences.”
