I got an email from a dude named James from a band called We Are Trees about an EP called Boyfriend he’d recorded in Virginia Beach, and the minute I checked out their Bandcamp I knew I’d be into these guys.
It’s just feel-good kind of music. The perfect mix of shimmery percussion, acoustic guitars, and a weighty beat carried by light vocals. It’s got this Grizzly Bear quality, with a sweeping grace, but enough pop sensibility to make it summer-worthy.
I found myself listening to these tracks over and over, forgetting who it was, just remembering how much I really enjoyed the songs.
Its funny because the photo would suggest they’d be something like Crystal Castles, but they’re more indie pop than rave electronic, but she does have some sweet shorts on. Anyway, hope to hear more from this pair soon.
