„Energy, melody, and solid song-writing – these are intrinsic elements of The Pins. Listeners are inevitably
compelled to hum a Pins song long after listening to it,
like a sweet after taste to a satiating meal. The Pins bring new life to the traditional guitar, bass, and drums line-up; they have an astounding talent for creating a distinct, full sound without the use of any additional instruments. Somewhere between the elloquent lyrical content and hammering guitar riffs The Pins deliver a freshness to a genre that seems almost to have forgotten how to breathe.“

The music of Lehnen moves between straight Rock Songs and swelling Postrock pieces. The classic Line-Up of Guitar/Bass/Drums are furthered through the additions of Synthesizer, Glockenspiel and Accordion. The songs are conveyed with much emotion; the changes between quiet passages and loud explosions make Lehnen (particularly in the Live Setting) to an intense experience. Music one can dive into and dream.
