VC Pines returns with new single 'Bones'

Following on from his impressive debut EP 'Indigo' from earlier this year, frontman VC Pines aka Jack Mercer has now returned with another soul-enriched slice of indie-rock.

The new single 'Bones' sees him channel a classic soul vibe that reflects the boisterous tone of his previous releases such as 'Vixen' and 'Garden Of The Year', and is expected to appear on a new EP from the singer, which is expected early next year.

Speaking about his new offering, he added, “'Bones' was inspired by the film ‘Onibaba’, a vintage Japanese film with themes of war, romance, famine and death. The protagonist of the film becomes a stalker in the name of love due to such desperate times as a way of survival and this is something I wanted to explore: to get in the mind-set of someone with such infatuation that they become obsessive. ‘Bones’ is written from within the mind-set of a teenage stalker in present day.”
