Adeline Pines album Review - Laura Kebby / by Newcastle Discovered

Local outfit Adeline Pines have absolutely produced the goods with their debut full length album - “Life of Wires”. Such a diverse and often eclectic mix of alt-country tracks, with just the right amount of undercover punk thrown in to appeal to a huge number of both old and new fans. There is something so raw, gritty and real about the way that Adeline Pines, particularly frontman Corey Price, really throw a story of heartbreak, heartache and a true “life of wires” at you with the album’s intensity growing with every listen.

 

“Life of Wires” is by no means a passive listening experience and the album really showcases the diversity of the band. Standout track “Open Hands” begins with this killer yet oh so dirty guitar riff and the entire track builds with every listen from that uniquely solid sound. “Forrest Fire” is yet another faced paced, fury filled, angsty onslaught of sound that really sticks true to the underlying metaphor.  On the flip side, “Another Young Boy” and “Your Little Victories” are seemingly stripped back, which really showcases the true talent of the outfit. One thing that seems to never waver, is the bands uncanny ability to draw the listener into each dark and dusty corner of the track leaving the intended wanting more with every play.

 

The sound, although eclectically diverse, is somehow deliciously cohesive with a seemingly effortless flow between tracks. The whole album seems to be about these jagged and mysterious pieces that are collected along the way as every track progresses. It’s this process that makes the unique “Adeline Pines” sound so addictive.

 

Standout Tracks: “Open Hands” and Your Little Victories”.

Listen to Because You’re… Wanting some killer lyrics to connect with and some late night ballads but also wanting to get sweaty to some dirty guitar on the sly.

Buy this album because: You love a band that can change up the setlist, you’re a sucker for some heavy

alt-country and a die hard fan of nomadic wonderment. Oh and most of all… You’re a FAN OF LOCAL MUSIC.
