Treefight For Sunlight

A Collection of Vibrations For Your Skull

[Friendly Fire Recordings]

Treefight For Sunlight is already gaining notoriety in their home country of Denmark and other parts of Europe where they have played sold out shows. Their single “Facing The Sun” has even been voted 2010’s Summer Favorite Hit over artists like Lady Gaga and Gorillaz. Although Americans may be a little behind in the discovery of Treefight For Sunlight, it’s not too late to get to know them.

Just to be clear, this is not ’60s music. But it does summon the aura of the ’60s. It’s whimisical, carefree and serene, almost artsy. The vocal harmonies bring back the nostalgic vocal stylings of The Mamas and The Papas. The synths, playful guitar melodies, and soft percussion follow the dreamy vocal style which encourages one to lay on a blanket in the grass and make out the shapes in the clouds.

The lyrics in “Facing The Sun” about sums up the whole feel of this album: everything and everyone should be facing the sun. Since fall is in full swing and winter is just around the corner, this album comes at a perfect time to warm up one’s spirits before we are inundated with holiday music.
