I love to fawn over Aussie acts, as the world probably knows, and lately, I’ve taken to enjoying the work of Treehouse. The band is letting us share this playful video, which might be the perfect introduction to the group…if you’ve yet to have them cross your radar. Musically, “Hammer on the Door” almost holds onto a dreamy quality, allowing the guitar work to walk the fine line between heavy alternative and jangling pop music. The vocals are a touch more impassioned, always ramshackle, creating a nice dose of tension between the brooding pop sensibility and a near-live quality. You’ll be able to grab a copy of the band’s forthcoming Centre of Their World EP on 12″ vinyl courtesy of Bedroom Suck Records; it’s being released on April 28th, and preorders can be grabbed HERE.
The muddied, angular guitars working atop each other in the opening moments of this new Treehouse track grabbed me immediately, circling like a vulture as the vocals were delivered in a very matter of fact manner. Drums pound and build the setting for emphatic vocals bursts that come amidst the musical chaos. These Tasmanians grind out the tune, choosing to leave listeners with one final vocal barrage in the song’s later half. Lots of promise here for sure; look for the band’s Centre of Their World EP to his via the uber reliable Bedroom Suck Records on April 28th.
Mr. Samuel Cooper is a man who has become well known for his work in the indie-pop group Sunglasses. New is hitting the streets today that the man is going solo for a spell and already has a full album of material ready for our ears. Previewing that new material is this delightful new tune called “Treehouse”. I love the bright and sunny feel you get from the song and can’t help but smile throughout. Enjoy.
Pick up new album, Treehouse, on April 8th via Mush Records.
