The Pines / Brendan Hogan
June 12, 2012
Creating quite a buzz around the Twin Cities and across the Upper Midwest, The Pines caught the attention of acclaimed indie label Red House Records and signed with them in 2007. The mysterious sound of The Pines fuses Benson's ethereal, otherworldly, heart-piercing songs with David's earthy, darkly romantic and rough-hewn visionary tales. With masterful guitar work, beautiful vocals and the graceful keyboard and vocal additions of Benson's brother Alex Ramsey, the core of The Pines sound captivates and elevates with rare intimacy.
Showcasing their distinct blend of dark atmospheric indie-folk, rock and blues, The Pines’ new album, "Dark So Gold" (2012) shows a young band that has fully arrived with a sound and song craft that stands apart on the indie music landscap
