Pinegrove, hailing from Montclair, New Jersey, return to the UK this month to follow up on their successful mini-tour of 2016. Their tour includes an appearance at Ceol Castle on 25th February. they quickly made themselves favourites of Brumlive.com and our Chris Curtis had this to say about their style in his review of their 2016 gig at The Sunflower Lounge:
It is evident from the outset that Pinegrove’s time invested in performing live has allowed them to really mould each song into a slightly different proposition to what is documented in their minimal output thus far. In addition to the subtle flourishes that appear every now and again, there is the sound of confidence flowing through every song. Not that either variation is inferior to the other. They both reward the listener for their endeavours. Stephens Hall’s voice in particular appears to have transcended to another echelon. It is as vulnerable as ever it was, but the power with which he is able to summon at will demands that the hairs on the back of my neck will be exhausted come the end of the night.
After a number of different releases and years of touring, Pinegrove have offered their finest work to date with their newest LP Cardinal. The band’s captivating blend of indie rock, pop and country elements is more vivid, fine-tuned, and addictive than ever before.
Evans Stephens Hall (Vocals and Guitar), Zack Levine (Drums), Nick Levine (Guitar), Adan Carlo (Bass) and Nandi Plunkett (Keyboard).
