Pinegrove Give Us A Lesson On Negotiation In “The Alarmist”

Negotiation 101

Pinegrove take us into the mental tug-of-war we find ourselves in when we’re negotiation with someone close to us in new single “The Alarmist.” The song is taken from their upcoming record Marigold, which will be out this Friday, January 17th via Rough Trade Records. It’s a warm, introspective track where the band captures the dynamics of intimacy and individual needs that often clash with each other:

In their own words, “this song tries to look at the negotiation of space between two people—balancing comfort and closeness with a need for independence. the song takes place in the first moment you find yourself alone after an intense experience with a friend, sorting through the layers of history, head swimming; revisiting frames of memory, seeing your relationship (& yourself in it) with startling clarity.”
