We Are Trees

If Grizzly Bear and Fleet Foxes had a baby you will get We Are Trees. Okay, strong statement there but the similarities are pretty evident. Sure lead singer James Nee’s voice sounds eerily close to that of Grizzly Bear’s Daniel Rossen, but there is something else that draws me into the luscious sounds of this four-piece band from Virgina Beach. Perhaps it’s Nee’s calming voice and all the layered harmonies that starts off slowly, builds up, and finally punches at you. Check out both Boyfriend and Girlfriend EP on their Bandcamp site, the sound is incredible.
