VIDEO // Taken By Trees Shares New “Only You” Video & Remix

Taken By Trees is back with a new video for “Only You.” Directed by Armen Harootun, the video sets out to explore the themes of love and sensual joy. Watch above. You can download the song now at iTunes and Amazon.

“To me the idea of the video came from the resistance of another idea. I became tired of watching videos of the same thing: a man chasing a woman, or visa versa. It seemed appropriate to consider love as something that doesn’t have to be between a man and a woman. The video is a showcase, not a demonstration of that idea.”Armen Harootun

In addition to video, we have a new “Only You” remix to share. Created by LA producer Belief (EI-P, Murs, Kate Boy), the track slowly builds over the tropical beat to a synthy dance jam. Stream below.

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
