WATCH: New Video for Taken By Trees – “Dreams” (Dub Remix)

Premiering earlier today at Pitchfork, Taken By Trees’ “Dreams” (Dub Remix) gets the visual treatment. Victoria pairs the song with a black and white mash-up of various seaside elements: seahorses, hula dancers, whales chilling at the bottom of the ocean – you know, all the expected stuff. It makes for a relaxing viewing experience. Grab a refreshing beverage and give it a watch or three. Video at top of post.

“Dreams” (Dub Remix) is found on the Dreams 12″. Purchase your copy HERE. Other Worlds is out October 2 and Victoria kicks off her tour later this fall in support of the new album–> dates and ticket links.

VIDEO: Taken By Trees – “Dreams”

Premiering today on Gawker, the new Taken By TreesDreams” video follows Victoria Bergsman through insanely gorgeous Hawaiian landscapes. Director Amanda Marsalis provides the perfect visual pairing to the song that Baebel Music calls a “hammock simulator.” Indeed, it’s endlessly refreshing – equivalent to a cool drink of water, the unexpected breeze on hot summer day. “Dreams” is intimate without overwhelming. Just think, it’s only the beginning of what’s to come from TBT’s Other Worlds, out on October 2. “I know a place where we can go and you can get back on your feet boy….” Follow her.
