“Intrepid,” the intensely-earnest new single from New Jersey natives Pinegrove, is as brilliant as it is difficult to categorize. Is it indie rock? Is it country? The guitar progressions are pure emo, while singer Evan Stevens-Hall has a delivery that’s completely his own, cracking vocals and all.
So here’s what I do know: the song is fantastic. And the blurring and melding of musical sensibilities makes it difficult to pin down, giving the track a timeless quality.
“Intrepid,” our Song of the Day, is from a forthcoming Pinegrove album. That’s about all we know at this point. Check it out below. Let me know what you think on Twitter (and follow us while you’re at).
