Video: Treefight For Sunlight – ‘Facing The Sun’
Danish Panda Bear anybody? Treefight For Sunlight are easily my new favourite band. All childhood friends, they entered public consciousness through a stirring performance on Channel 4′s Abbey Road Debuts.
The endless inventiveness across their self-titled debut album is entirely pleasing, and the comprehensive result is a paradoxic of ease and complexity. This is spotless sixties sunshine music, embracing swooning Beach Boy’s harmonies and Flaming Lips’ arrangements. It’s the naturally perfect feelgood blend to make you like the world.
Treefight For Sunlight is out now on Bella Union.
