Hearing Trees is supporting the release of their long-anticipated full length album, “Quiet Dreams.” The group’s lush, layered brand of ambient and anxious rock is built atop a foundation inspired by R.E.M., Matthew Good, and The Tragically Hip and tinged with the more modern and atmospheric musings of Wintersleep and The National. Coupled with sometimes cryptic, always captivating poetry, Hearing Trees offers a masterclass in sweet-sounding catharsis.
Saskatoon indie rock.
An indie folk project with roots in the Ottawa Valley and wings in Saskatoon and Montreal. Lead member Laura Beach crafts a dark and lovely sound with imagery that draws on a life well-lived between small towns and cityscapes. Live-looping of violin, voice and guitar make for a performance that is equal parts stunning simplicity and playful complexity.
