“Time Slows Down” showcases the band’s great songwriting, as well as their ability to weave musical styles fluidly. The skittering bluegrass romp of the verses mimics the fast pace of life as the lyrics plead for time to move a little slower so life can be experienced to its fullest. Trudging along rhythmically, the chorus mimics the deliberate and unhurried pace of time.
Like the steady and strong trees from which they take their name, The Mighty Pines continue to grow in stature, creating vast musical landscapes with their layered harmonies and thoughtfully crafted instrumentation. The band, which hails from St. Louis, generates a palpable vibe on their new single, Late Last Night, produced by Steve Berlin of Los Lobos. The Mighty Pines is touring nationally and has supported renowned acts just as JJ Grey & Mofro, The Dead South, Parker Millsap, Fruition and Sam Bush.
