Rach Brennan & The Pines promise a sound that is completely their own, a quirky symbiosis of jangly indie-pop with a roots music aesthetic. Rach’s sunny spirit is embedded in their captivating live performances. Bolstered by their distinctive close-knit vocal style, they sing of friendship, innocence and the unabashed naivety of falling in and out of love.
The group’s authentic sound has seen them sell out hometown shows at Geelong’s Barwon Club on two occasions. Rach’s indie-roots pop stylings have captivated audiences both in her home country of Australia and abroad. In 2015 Rach took her music on a solo endeavor to Europe, playing a string of 27 shows across 10 countries. Upon returning home to Geelong, Rach Brennan & The Pines released the single Weapon of Love. The song was a huge success, reaching #4 on the iTunes Singer Songwriter charts in June 2018. The band even sold out two hometown single launches in less than a week. Since then the band has gone on to support Australian music alumni Bob Evans, Lisa Mitchell, Kingfisha, Sahara Beck and The Teskey Brothers.
Now Rach Brennan & The Pines are back with their ode to young love, I Wanna See You, the first single from their debut album, scheduled for release in 2019. “I Wanna See You is a song about young love. All the squishy, sappy stuff that goes through your head the first time you really feel it,” Rach said. “The kind of stuff no one wants to say out loud – that’s what we put in the lyrics. It’s a sweetly naive kind of feeling, mirrored by the playful instrumental and the boy’s ‘ooh-la-la’ serenade.”
