Pinegrove performs gorgeous acoustic versions of “New Friends” and “The Metronome”

May 4, 2016

I dare anyone to listen to Pinegrove's latest album Cardinal and not fall in love with the band. The raw, emotive, and powerful vocals of Evan Stephens Hall bring the gorgeous instrumentation to another level. The music tugs right at your heartstrings. If there's a breakout band in 2016, my bet is on Pinegrove.

Pinegrove performs "The Metronome" live at Chart HQ

We couldn't pass up the opportunity of getting to witness Evan Stephens Hall perform these songs live, so we brought him to our offices and said "do your thing." Everyone on the floor slowly removed their headphones as his voice echoed throughout the building. It was so jaw-dropping I had to double check I hit record.

Above he performs an alternate take on "New Friends," a song from Cardinal, and the beautiful, climactic "The Metronome". Take a listen, and you won't regret it.

Pinegrove's album Cardinal is out now on Run For Cover Records.
