Treetop Flyers know they wanted to take control.
After two superb albums the London band opted to remain in the capital as they chipped away at their third full length, a terrific fusion of blissful Americana and soulful flourishes.
Working at East London space The Cube, Treetop Flyers had the time and resources to stretch out a little, to try new things.
Self-titled, the group's new album arrives on August 24th, and comes as they prepare for a flurry of UK festivals.
We're able to share new song 'Needle', a bold, vivid return, one that finds Treetop Flyers pushing themselves further and further.
The band's Reid Morrison explains...
“I had just got out the shower and I was listening to an old Ted Hawkins record. I lost track of what I was doing and heard this noise, I couldn't work out what it was but it sounded like the best drum sound I'd ever heard… with the old school hiss and everything. I thought my flatmates were playing a tune or something. I then remembered I had put the record on and the record had reached the end but had this perfect loop.”
Tune in now.
