VISIONS OF TREES
Visions of Trees are Sara Atalar and Joni Juden. They met in the end of summer 09 and started hanging out and jamming at a friend's basement in Dalston,East London. They wanted to make electronic music. They believed that electronic music offers an endless spectrum of sonic and visual possibilities. The more they talked the more they realized they shared ideologies and perspectives on alienation, escapism and solitude, but also on things pure, beautiful and real. They shared a love for pop songs, r n b and dance music from the 90's. Outside of music, they both drew on their respective histories, memories, things that have and continue to haunt them, the unconscious and nature.
Since their conception Sara and Joni have been busy cutting their teeth on the gig circuit and have toured or played shows with the likes of Mount Kimbie, Everything Everything, Sleigh Bells, Neon Indian, Memory Tapes, Becoming Real, Actress, Bear In Heaven and Teeth. If 2010 was the year for fiddling with other peoples music and drawing a live crowd, VoT are primed and ready to lay down and release their own vision in 2011.
"Visions of Trees add a dose of minor-chord industrialism to this darker side of trop-pop, like the twisted steel of a burnt-out propeller plane rusting in the jungle"Loud And Quiet
Plant Plants are a two-piece band from Hackney, East Londonmade up of Stuart Francis and Howard Whatley. Having secured the production support of Jas Shaw from Simian Mobile Disco they released their first EP on 22nd June on This Is Music. They’ve implied before that the loss of a few mutual friends and the subsequent heartache inspired their desire to produce and this sentiment is evident in the melancholy of the songs and darkness of some of the lyrics.
Originally meeting and demoing over the internet, The Voyeurist have built up an extensive back catalogue and forceful live resume whilst maintaining impressive critical responses and a growing fanbase.
Dark, compacted soundscapes nestle themselves inbetween the catchiest of choruses, showcasing brooding sensibilities even as they press through shamelessly addictive up-tempo hooks. Indie-electro, but with an industrial-tinted minimalism hiding beneath a tender pop musicality.
