Fire Island Pines

Fire Island Pines are twee indie pop band formed in Cornwall, UK in 2010 when laconic singer-songwriter Anton Rothschild, who’d been quietly releasing his own brand of maudlin lo-fi pop over the internet, stumbled into a band of Cornish indie wanderers, with their own unique blend of talents. Together they have woven Anton’s bleak lyrics into a jaunty, uplifting sonic tapestry punctuated by shimmering trumpet lines and an unholy tri-guitar wall-of-jangle. The result is a bittersweet pop parcel that is both distinctive and accessible.
