"L.A. Times Review"

"The Black Pine crafts a thicket of experimental, emotive rock."- L.A. Times - L.A. Times

"Prefix Magazine Review"

The Black Pine are a Los Angeles quartet whose music is light on the bpm, heavy on the textured, end-of-the-day-and-the-world ambience. Guitars tug lightly, drums lope, vocals harmonize in ghostly fashion. And yet despite the languid songs, so much craft goes into the arrangements that it all comes across as a little bit joyful anyway."

- Etan Rosenbloom -Prefix Magazine - Prefix Magazine

"L.A. Alternative Press Review"

"The Black Pine shows patience and measured angst with an emotional vocabulary that most bands this side of the Atlantic just can’t master. Dark songwriting that doesn’t aspire to goth, and the ability to conjure deep sadness without gettin’ emo on everyone, makes the Black Pine a rare species these days." - LA Alternative Magazine - L.A. Alternative Press

"Radio Free Silver Lake Review"

"The Black Pine make dark, stormy pop music that's at times reminiscent of some improbable pairing of The Cranes and The Kinks. How can you not like that?"-Radio Free Silver Lake - Radio Free Silver Lake

"Under The Radar Review"

"With Sexlife of Flowers, this LA four piece strikes a chord somewhere between French pop (one of the vocalists is in fact French) and something much darker. There's almost a Nick Cave brooding presence to the bands dual female vocals and sparse instrumentation. Expect to see more from The Black Pine."
