House of Trees
If Billie Holiday was singing Kurt Weill songs in a Tim Burton movie we might be getting somewhere close to describing the original songs of ‘House of Trees’. The group is a Swedish/English mix that blend jazz, folk and a pinch of classical to deliver a musical and lyrical journey from melancholic fairytales through dark blues to earthy jazz tunes.
Songs of joy and longing played on scrappy guitars, and probably the slowest band in the world.
Stripped down, but not empty. Simple songs with an uneasy tinge. Electricity. Cold air. Two boys in perfect harmony, creating imperfect harmony. See-through people of yet unwritten songs. Hardly even exist. Come hear our music!
“Whimsical guitar and harmonica-filled numbers, intrinsically linked with his between-song banter. He is most definitely weird”
