“A swarming synth that buzzes throughout the song…awesome” NME
“a swirling, shadowy, dancefloor-ready number from London duo Visions Of Trees” Pitchfork
Visions of Trees comprise Londoners Sara Atalar and Finish Wonderkid Joni Juden. They met a few summers back and quickly formed a friendship over a love of Pop music, R&B, and 90′s dance. They also shared an aesthetic interest in the romantic wilderness and the solitude and escapism that it represents. It didn’t take long for them to forge these two things into a haunting and penetrating sound that takes advantage of the sonic freedom afforded by electronic music to simultaneously evoke the alienation of urban life and the austerity of nature.
In the two years since they formed, Sara and Joni have kept crafting an ever-growing sound that has remained distinctive and true. ‘Sirens (Novocaine)’ is no exception, Joni’s moody, lush production, with its stuttering drum breaks and sweeping synths, and Sara’s crystal clear voice combining far flung influences to make something new and unique.
‘Sirens (Novocaine)’ follows their debut release ‘Sometimes it kills’ / ‘No Flag’ (Moshi Moshi) which gained the fledgling duo many new fans.
Visions of Trees have been back on the festival circuit this summer too, with shows at the likes of Rockness, Glastonbury, Lounge on the Farm, Field Day and Beacons Festival.
