LSTN: Taken By Trees Premiere New Track on NPR

Taken By Trees release a brand new track, “Dreams,” from the forthcoming album Other Worlds. The song is available for streaming and download exclusively at NPR’s All Songs Considered, where it premiered earlier this afternoon. You can pre-order the 12″ single for “Dreams,” which features album, extended instrumental and dub versions of the track, starting today at SC Distribution. Other Worlds isn’t out until October 2, but you can watch the album trailer HERE.

Listen and download “Dreams.”

“I hardly remember my dreams these days. Sometimes, if I am lucky and I wake up very late, I find a thin film of another time or another life. I try desperately to capture this residue of a dream before it quickly fades. But the kind of dream I am referring to in this song is more like a sense of longing, a vision of a place where things are quiet, like floating in the ocean off of Hawaii.” -Victoria Bergsman of Taken By Trees

EXITMUSIC Tours with Phantogram, ‘From Silence’ EP Streaming Now at Paste

Right now at Paste Magazine you can sample the entire debut EP from New York City duo EXITMUSIC, out next week on Oct. 4 (Oct. 5 in the UK). The From Silence EP’s dark dream-pop shifts from haunting to hammering, ethereal to explosive — albeit like bombs lighting up the night sky just over the horizon. It’s a rich and confident thesis statement from a band that has been praised by Vogue, NPR’s All Songs Considered, UK’s The Guardian and New York Magazine. Head HERE to listen to Paste’s stream and hear why EXITMUSIC has received earnest comparisons to heavyweights of the form like Portishead, Sigur Ros and Bjork.

In October and November, EXITMUSIC will be on a US tour with sonic cousins Phantogram. Meanwhile, two very, very special New York shows: An Oct. 4 EP Release Show at The Mercury Lounge with Lonely Dear; and a Halloween show at The Music Hall of Williamsburg with The Black Angels and The Psychic Ills. Wowwy, right? See all upcoming EXITMUSIC dates HERE.
