Hearing Trees takes you from anxiety-laced post-punk to uplifting sing-along choruses that garner comparisons to Interpol and R.E.M.
A backdrop of reference-filled lyrics grasp the gritty, dry edge of modern life - from Canadian soldiers coming home from the Spanish civil war, to kayaking in the Arctic Circle, through a swath of eclectic shards of culture.
The band released a sophomore EP, Dear Sahara, in August 2015 and toured Western Canada in support. Dear Sahara boasts four songs tied together by a letter-writing theme, with art and handwritten liner notes by frontman Graham Moon. The EP earned a 5/5 review in Canadian Beats, topped the chart at CKUW, and reached #35 nationally on Earshot.
Hearing Trees is currently writing and touring, with plans to record again with Michael P Falk (Head in the Sand, Les Jupes).
“[Hearing Trees'] Dear Sahara is the embodiment of poetic lyrics, soulful vocals, and captivating music - a true work of art.” Canadian Beats.
”...they combine the best elements of old school alternative pop-rock (think R.E.M. or 54-40) and contemporary indie.“ Ride the Tempo
”What really resonates…is the artistic lyrics, which weave together an exploration of doubt, admiration, uncertainty, and other experiences and emotions.“ The Manitoban
