The melancholy flows in the melodic and evocative shoegaze that Copenhagen based Pinemoon brings on their next EP ‚Ghost Light’, that will be released on the 6th of May 2022 on the German record label LIVE TALENT Records. Pinemoon draws on the energy of indie rock and are not afraid of letting the songs take their time to develop into dreamy arrangements that bring The Jesus and Mary Chain, Pale Saints and even the cult series of David Lynch, Twin Peaks, to mind. In spite of mentioned references, Pinemoon still manages to find their very own and unique sound.
Pinemoon is a constellation of experienced musicians, who have been playing together for 20 years in different musical projects, and therefore their live concerts are characterized by intimacy and energy.
The EP entitled ‚Ghost Light’ is recorded live in the studio and mixed analog, which gives a warm, nostalgic sound and ensures that the music will emerge real and tastefully stylish.
The melancholic and nostalgic foundation is not only a musical tone, but it is also inextricably linked to the existential theme of the EP. The members of Pinemoon are raised in strong christian environments, where the confident belief in divine interventions in life crises and bad situations didn’t leave much space for doubting. The theme of the EP circles around the feeling of confusion and disappointment when a firm belief and anchored worldview meets the reality of life.
The first single, “Ghost Light”, will be released on March 11. On “Ghost Light” Pinemoon builds up a dreamy and grandiose sound, and the lyrics refers to a life left behind for the better. The focus track, “Dead End Street” will be released together with the EP. It is based on a strong melody and might show a little more optimistic version of Pinemoon.
