LAND OF PINES
"Rilo Kiley with razor blades." – KEXP
Land Of Pines is a rock quintet from the little northwestern seaport of Seattle. Featuring tightly crafted interlocking guitar parts, rich guy-girl vocal harmonies, and a rock-solid rhythm section, the band's sonically lush songs span a spectacular spectrum: one minute catchy and playful, the next heavy and electrified, loud enough to make every last strand of hair stand on end.
The band began as a recording project between lead singers/guitarists Evan Easthope and Kessiah Gordon. Back in 2008, in a yurt on John’s Island, Washington, they recorded the foundation of what would become Land of Pines' first three EPs. After working on the songs for two years, it became clear that they would need to assemble a full band to support the releases.
Enter Spencer Miller (bass), Kyle Holland (drums), and Alex Miller (keyboards/percussion). Within a year of the band's coalescence in September '10, the full group had garnered a bounty of local press, placed first in the national College Battle of the Bands competition, performed at numerous notable festivals, and established a beautiful and loyal fanbase in the Northwest.
In August of 2011, Land Of Pines began recording their first material written as a five-piece at Seattle’s Jupiter Studios with veteran rock producer Martin Feveyear (Presidents of the U.S.A., Screaming Trees, Mudhoney, Girls, Queens of the Stone Age, The Briefs). On 11.20.12, Fin Records will release the lead-off single "Dead Feathers" [FIN-LE7-010] as a limited edition 7", marking the band's debut on vinyl; Fin will then follow up with Land of Pines' fourth EP. This forthcoming record is the final installment in an EP series that showcases the band’s sonic evolution from a pair of bedroom composers to a full-fledged musical entity.
Land of Pines is traipsing voraciously into a mellifluous future. Will we see you there?
Stay tuned for Land Of Pine's anticipated EP release May, 2013...
