Two years after the critically acclaimed debut album “Antennas To The Sky” Berlin band The Halo Trees releases their second record, “Summergloom”, today. The dark indie rock has been further developed and now has a more progressive feel. While, on the one hand, emphasis is still placed on catchy melodies, more challenging harmonic constructions and some rhythmic oddities add complexity to the songs. From acoustic elements to increasingly electronic influences to epic sound clusters with post-rock vibes, the pieces cover a broad dynamic spectrum. However, primarily the deep, warm vocals, the interlocking soundscapes of guitars, synths, violin, and bass, as well as the drumming, which is heavily dominated by toms, are formative. A rock sound with a lot of depth, feeling, and melancholy.
There is a small downer, however, because the vinyl release had to be postponed spontaneously, as the pressing plant could not keep the production date due to a lack of raw materials. The band hopes to catch up on the vinyl release in the course of 2021. CD and digital albums are now available worldwide – exclusively in the Winter Solitude shop and on Bandcamp also as a fan package with shirts and lanyards.
