Tales of Us Press Release
  • I found this press release online. Did a search on the forum and didn't find it. If I've missed it for some reason, I can delete the thread. (I'll update the Press on Tales of Us thread with the link...) I found it most interesting!

    Link to press release


    "Seventh Tree’s opening song ‘Clown’s is a useful foreshadowing touchstone for what happened musically with Tales of Us. It is suffused with winding melodies that veer toward the black keys of the keyboard, reflecting the narrative drive, hearts that have lived, loved and stung. Sometimes voice and music is indistinguishable. For ‘Laurel’ she found herself in an usually low register. On ‘Jo’, she went high. Always, she was faithfully following the rhythm and texture of the story. “I don’t want to sound too dramatic or ridiculous about this but it really is like you’ve been possessed.”

    I was on there about an hour ago! I always like the craft of a good press release.

    You can tell how much of a hand the artist(s) had usually too.
    A million fires before your harvest comes. To burn out.
    Wear the mask of a heathen. For the moon's lonely eyes.

    I'm getting more excited by the hour to listen to the full album... 
  • Yeah, that blurb offers a cracking insight/intro to the album. Can't wait to hear it! :)

    Then let's hope that July has more in store for us. Because looping the 52 second trailer constantly in my head can only last so long.

  • I don't want to hear a single, the trailer, or any other sort of tease. I'm waiting patiently for the whole crop.
    If I were dead, could I do this?
