WATCH // Taken By Trees Perform Live for NPR’s Tiny Desk, Victoria Shares New ‘When The Lights Are Low’ Spotify Playlist

Taken By Trees recently paid a visit to the NPR offices for a charming Tiny Desk performance. Victoria and the boys chose to play “I Want You” and “Only You” and do so wonderfully. Bob Boilen writes, “These songs seem to come from a place somewhere between a dream state and waking life: There’s restraint to the way the players approach this music, almost as if they’re trying not to wake the baby in the other room.” Watch both songs above!

Victoria put together a Spotify playlist, sharing songs that influenced the music and writing of Other Worlds. Stream When The Lights Are Low below!

“I have selected songs that I listened to while I was writing and producing ‘Other Worlds.’ Some songs I took inspiration from for its overall sound like the Augustos Pablo track and “Diamond Head” by The Beach Boys. Other songs I have taken inspiration when it comes to lyrics or just an ambience or feel. For me Other Worlds is a pure love album with a perfect temperature of 29 celsius hanging in the air while laying on a sandy beach.” – Victoria
