Considering how his stellar debut track “Amber” went viral, Unusual Demont is quite the remarkable newcomer. The Wisconsin native crafts luscious R&B soundscapes that’ll have you falling in love with him instantly. As his sophomore cut, Demont is pleased to present his irresistible new single, “Pine.”
Sonically, “Pine” is a sultry offering that perfectly encompasses Demont’s imagined late night roller rink; however, the charming lyricism suggests that “Pine” lacks a happy ending. Written about a homewrecker destroying an already failing relationship, “Pine” serves as a reminder that not everything is always as it seems. By the end of this intoxicating track, we’re absolutely swooning over Demont and his captivating aura.
On “Pine,” Unusual Demont explained,
“With ‘Pine,’ I wanted to show a dichotomy between the lyrics and energy of the song again. Although the song itself is really bouncy and upbeat, it’s actually about the moral dilemma of a homewrecker coming into a dying relationship. As I wrote it, I imagined a roller rink in the late 90s/early 2000s lit up with green lights on a Friday night. I chose the name ‘Pine’ because green is the color of envy and that’s the exact hue I visualized at the roller rink.”
