Hailing from Vancouver BC with members from across the world, Pinebarren mix a multitude of influences to create nostalgic/modern indie rock. Friends Michael Ferraro, Allard van der Knijff, Adam Terris and Jinmo Kim formed the band in 2019, working throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to hone their sound and style before releasing their first single, Without the Weather in the spring of 2022.

They released their self-produced debut album, Past Time on March 4. The album explores the emotions felt by reflecting on memories of people and places. It also looks inward at the challenges of pursuing a creative life as a career. Past Time was recorded at Vancouver's Monarch Studios and produced by Michael Ferraro. The album includes the popular singles Without the Weather, We All Become Tall Trees and Appeal.
