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

Nightlands & The Beach Boys :: A Love that Lasts Forever

It came as no surprise when we asked Nightlands’ Dave Hartley to curate a Spotify playlist for us, he chose to center his creation around The Beach Boys. In describing the list, Dave shares, “The Beach Boys are much more than the just Pet Sounds and Surf-Car-Girl party songs. Here are twelve strange and beautiful songs that came after.” Perhaps this is a side to the boys we’ve yet to truly take notice. Each of the 12 songs were chosen for good reason and Dave tells you why >>> you’ll find both the descriptions and playlist below. Enjoy! Read the rest of this entry »
