Pinegrove has become one of the most enduring indie bands to form during the 2010s. Long-time members Evan Hall and Zack Levine grew up together in Montclair, New Jersey and played in various bands until they landed on their current folk rock approach. Since then, they have built up a discography of raw, emotional records rooted in both Americana and emo influences. The band has a massively devoted following –affectionately known as “Pinenuts”– that connect deeply with Hall’s literary lyrics and symbolic imagery.
