Earworm Of The Week: The Pines

Drawing from Americana and bluegrass influences, The Pines are an underappreciated Twin Cities act. Their first full-length, Tremolo, wove haunting ballads like “Heart and Bones” with boot stomping tunes like “Pray Tell.” The delicate balance between edgy and atmospheric defines singer-songwriters David Huckfelt and Benson Ramsey’s music. The result is rich, authentic sounds reminiscent of a simpler life and bittersweet times gone by.

This track is from The Pines’ forthcoming album, Dark So Gold, which will hopefully be on the set list at their release show at the Cedar Cultural Center on Feb. 17.
