About this item
In 21st century terms, no one sounds remotely like Treefight For Sunlight. just one spin of debut single “What Became of You and I” will confirm their swooning, roller-coasting, deliriously jubilant sunshine pop that harks back to more innocent times.
The band, who have known each other since childhood, hail from Denmark (capital Copenhagen to be precise), clearly a breeding ground for mavericks judging by the likes of Mew, The Raveonettes, Oh No Ono and Treefight’s fellow Bella Union voyagers The Kissaway Trail. Bands that unstitch rock/pop’s rich tapestry and weave in their own unique and challenging DNA. In Treefight For Sunlight’s case, it’s the legacy of California’s west coast pop art, from its origins in the epic harmonies of The Association and The Turtles, which had a knock-on effect in the ‘70s with Sparks and the ‘80s with LA’s Paisley Underground scene. Fans of the Flaming Lips, MGMT and Panda Bear will surely also appreciate Treefight For Sunlight’s layered, twisting, caramelised energy and absorbing imagery.
Or as music aggregator soundmavem.com puts it, “Treefight For Sunlight” is the crystallisation of a colourful submerged world of exotic fish and strange, wild-growing plants. The orchestral and complex chamber-pop sounds so cheerful and uncomplicated that the listener finds him or herself drawn into the mildly psychedelic travels towards the unknown.”
Let the sunshine in.........
