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. Watch “Dreams” above.

Victoria will also DJ at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA as part of the PLAY MOCA Festival. Finally, TBT joins Jens Lekman this fall for a North American tour. See all dates HERE.

“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
