Like any enterprising band on the rise, Pinegrove have been testing out fresh material while out on the road in recent months. If you haven’t been able to catch their shows, you can still hear one of the new songs thanks to an acoustic session the band did with Philadelphia radio station WXPN.
Pared down to the duo of frontman Evan Stephens Hall and backup vocalist Nandi Rose Plunkett, the CoSigned outfit performed a track called “Portal”. Standing face to face on the rooftop of PhilaMOCA, the pair delivered the sweet and stirring song like two lovers gently unraveling their relationship. “Do you also feel the weight of loss?/ Isn’t it lonely?,” they asked in unison. “I’ll never hold you/ The way you held me up.” Watch the performance above.
There’s no word on whether “Portal” will appear on a follow-up to the alt-country outfit’s Cardinal, but that album didn’t even come out a year ago, so have some patience.
