Listening to Sea of Trees is like taking a musical Rorschach test. The band weaves male/female vocals and spacious indie rock arrangements into a sound that has been described as imaginative, moody, dynamic and beautiful. Creative instrumentation and a successful marriage of art and pop has kept the Upstate New York band propelled with strong momentum since their conception in 2007.
The band's debut full-length album, Animal Sounds, earned them "The Best New Band of 2009" in Albany's alternative weekly Metroland.
Sea of Trees has performed across the Capital District and in New York City, often utilizing other art forms like dance, costumes, crafts and theatrics in concert with their live performances to enhance the sprawling, dynamic nature of their work. A 2009 performance and interview at The Linda was featured on National Public Radio, and the subsequent release of Live at the Linda is available as a free download.
Their latest project, "Fletcher and The Hendersons,"expands on the band's imaginative songwriting skills with an accompanying children's book illustrated by Pelham, NY-based artist Nancy Palazzo.
