After seven quiet months, Norwegian/English duo Tuvaband (Simon Would and Tuva Hellum Marschhäuser), returns the heartfelt Trees.
Recorded in two apartments across Oslo, Trees is a melancholic affair. Gentle guitars rustle with reverb alongside lo-fi textures that billow with a melodious breathe like the morning light. Marschhäuser’s vocals are crystalline, stretching and crooning into the icy atmosphere. “We fell trees, we fell people/ Cause when we fell, we fell,” she sings, likening the destruction of human connections with that of nature. “Trees and people have a lot in common, a lot more than we know,” says the band. “‘Trees’ is about the fact that we might also share the same faith if we keep on tearing down rainforests.”
