Brisbane-based Indie Folk innovator anisos released their latest rapturously sweet single “treetops” on January 17th. And my soul feels infinitely lighter for hearing it.
The quiescently quaint Folk soundscape leaves the instrumental arrangement minimal. Which leaves plenty of room for the resoundingly arrestive vocals to fill the soundscape full of personable passion which makes it all too easy to surrender yourself completely to the single. The ethereally light air to treetops along with the reflectively poetic lyricism makes for a sonorously unforgettable experience.
If you could imagine what Nick Cave’s music would sound like in an alternate universe where he didn’t aim to disconcert with his music. Instead, he aimed to captivate through pure indulgent rhythmic alchemy, you may be able to get an idea of what’s on offer in treetops. Of course, you’d get a much more accurate picture by hitting play for yourselves!
You can check out the latest track from anisos for yourselves by heading over to Bandcamp.
