The Pinkerton Raid’s songwriter Jesse James DeConto hails from New England, steeped in the sounds of Soulsville, Liverpool, The Village and Laurel Canyon, now mining foothills-folk in Durham, N.C., for songs AMERICANA-UK calls “anthemic.” Critics hear influences from Sufjan to Wilco. “Radiant,” said AMERICAN SONGWRITER. “Poignant,” said ROLLING STONE. The band has played with Illiterate Light, Ballroom Thieves, The Cactus Blossoms, Lowland Hum, The Collection and Noah Gundersen. They’ve slotted at Daytrotter, Shakori Hills, and Albino Skunk Music Festival. GLIDE MAGAZINE said their newest singles “purr with the garage-rock swagger of The White Stripes and the irritated kick of Cage the Elephant.” “A towering forest of indie rock with a timbre of folk that shadows Langhorne Slim, Cold War Kids, and the Killers,” said THE SPILL MAGAZINE. “A sound for dreamers around a campfire,” said GHETTOBLASTER.
