Pin Me Down



Pin Me Down is an electro-pop duo of Russell Lissack (Bloc Party) and Milena Mepris.  The two met in 2005 when Milena’s former band Black Moustache opened for Bloc Party at the famed Knitting Factory in New York City. The two became fast friends, bonding over their love of pink guitars, well crafted songs and 80s pop icons. Living on two different continents (Russell- in London, Milena – in New York), the pair wrote songs long distance, emailing bits and pieces to one another over the internet. They released their debut single “Cryptic” in 2008 to rave reviews and a coveted spot on the Kitsune Maison 5 compilation: GOLD. Their eponymous debut album followed in 2010 as well as the singles “Treasure Hunter” and “Curious.” They have received praise from NME, Pitchfork, Dazed & Confused, I-D, The Times (of London), Music Week, RCRD LBL, Spinner and many more.
