Taken By Trees
Taken By Trees
Taken by Trees, the brainchild of renaissance woman Victoria Bergsman, has signed to Secretly Canadian. The former front woman of the Concretes (who you may also recognize from the Peter, Bjorn & John hit "Young Folks") has been hard at work on a new album influenced by a trip to Hawaii and falling in love. Bergsman says of the signing, "I am really excited to be working with Secretly Canadian. I admire how thoughtful they are when it comes to who they sign. I imagine that's due to how much dedication and hard work it takes to deliver something truly special." Bergsman's distinctive voice has served her well, with two critically acclaimed albums under her belt (2007's Open Field and 2009's East of Eden) as well as collaborations with the aforementioned Peter, Bjorn & John, and indie pop bedroom dreamers, Korallreven and Dan Lissvik of nu-Baleric dance kings Studio. For the Swedish chanteuse, each album has been a boundary-testing exploration - Open Field was recorded in just six days and East of Eden grew out of a trip to Pakistan. Victoria's creativity and sense of wonder makes Taken by Trees a singular project that is served well by her playful pop sensibilities.
Bouquet
Bouquet
Bouquet is a kaleidoscopic pop duo from Los Angeles, CA consisting of Carolyn Pennypacker Riggs and Max Foreman. The two set out to create a uniquely inviting, immersive sound, intoning delicate vocal harmonies to a rising, ghostlike mass of guitar, trembling synthesizer, and pulsations of early rhythm machines. Lyrics alternate between painterly portraits out of time and devastatingly simple pop tenacity to delightful effect. Bouquet's music echoes the undefinable post-punk wonders Young Marble Giants and This Mortal Coil, synth heroes such as Cluster and Suicide, and the dulcet sensibilities of Sibylle Baier and Sandy Denny.
