Philadelphia-based outfit Pine Barons will be releasing their new track "Little Spain" on Thursday, but they're offering an early listen.
The electric, simply hypnotic new cut is premiering today on Variance ahead of the official release. Following the New Jersey natives' recent singles "Sputter" and "Meadowsong," this is the third preview of their upcoming album Mirage on the Meadow, which is out Oct. 9 via Grind Select.
"At the time, I was doing a lot of lyrical experiments like dada, language translations, and rorschach-like picture slideshows," says frontman Keith Abrams. "I was skimming through some poetry books to get myself into a lyrical mindset, when after reading Sylvia Plath's 'Lady Lazarus,' I was then led to Ted Hughes’ 'To Paint A Water Lily.'"
He continues: "And so, because the two poets had been married in real life, it led me to the idea of marrying their poems by cutting out each of the words from the pages of the two poems and scattering them on the floor — at first just picking out words without thinking and assembling them at random, then, as it always goes with dada, it starts making complete sense and a subconscious idea begins to crystalize in the chaos."
Hear "Little Spain" below now and everywhere tomorrow.
