Okay, so that’s not exactly how the lyrics of Big Tree‘s song This New Year go. But the point is, when it comes to heartfelt music the band known as Big Tree has got the tunes for you.
Born from Sarah Lawrence College, Big Tree has set itself apart from other college bands through their poetic lyrics and uniform-esque (yet, complexly layered) instrumentals. This ‘genre-bending’ band considers themselves to be an “indie pop quintet,” and have self-described their music as being part of the “indie pop psychedelia” genre. This description comes as no surprise once you pop their CD in and take a listen.
It’s hard not to listen when music is this good. Check out their Facebook ( http://www.facebook.com/bigtreesings?sk=info ), or stream through their Myspace ( http://www.myspace.com/bigtreesings ).
My top two tracks are:
1) This New Year: This New Year
2) Whole Wide World
Peace out, but stay tuned for more reviews to come,
