PICTURES came together around 2012. exler and borwitzky played in a band a few years before. as well as fries and krieg. In 2017 they released their debut album „promise“. A few month later they put out „kind of promise“. The EP includes four acoustic versions of songs from „promise“.

After touring with Paul Weller, Kaiser Chiefs and solo shows they promoted the documentary „we were kings“, a movie about the band’s history.

In October 2018 the band released the song „Roll Up“. About a month later Love`s A Shooting Gun was released on 9 november 2018. On 7 December 2018 they released Don't Take Your Love Away.

They definitely love the beatles and they are influenced by them as well as by lots of 60s bands. Overall they sound more british than they are.
