Pinegrove – Alaska

Formed in 2010, Pinegrove are an American rock band from New Jersey. The line-up is variable, with two main members: Evan Stephans Hall and Zack Levine. On 28 January they’ll release their sixth album 11:11. This title can be explained in a number of ways (pun intended): it resembles a row of trees for instance, or striped corduroy, or people shoulder-to-shoulder. The record was self-produced by the band, and mixed by Chris Walla (Death Cab For Cutie).

Of the album’s themes, Hall says: β€œIt spends equal time on optimism, community, reaffirming our human duty to look out for one another even in the absence of the people we expect to do those things. What if we have to be our own salvation?”

Just over two minutes long, Alaska is the forthcoming album’s second single. It’s an upbeat four-to-the-floor track, full of driving guitar-based riffs. Lyrically, it references the idea behind the album title. Alaska is about flying diagonally across the country and seeing patterns in cornrows, trees, and more, all resembling the shape of the number β€˜1’.

Following an extensive tour of North-America, early 2022, the band will come over to Europe in May.
