The Hollering Pines - 'Here's To Hoping'

7/10

Ever since they first emerged more than a decade ago, Salt Lake City's The Hollering Pines have been one of the more alluring names on the modern country scene. Blending a traditional aesthetic with a more forward-thinking direction than most, their tenure to date has been filled with a rich and glorious array of tender delights, brimming with heartfelt warmth throughout. And after the rousing response to their 2019 offering 'Moments In Between', they return once again with their fourth studio album 'Here's To Hoping', a record that continues those illuminating vibes once again.

Much like they output to date, 'Here's To Hoping' follows more of that dreamy flow they have become synonymous for. Keeping the momentum and energy as rich as possible, this new nine-track collection sees them return to the fold in one of their most explorative guises yet. With this beautifully arranged production heightened by some truly passionate vocals at every turn, they are building upon their previous outings with style and aplomb from beginning to end.

While they have certainly made a serious mark on the scene these last few years, 'Here's To Hoping' shows there are still plenty of fresh ideas rattling around them right now. Progressive and immersive in equal measure, The Hollering Pines are returning in stellar form here.
