Treefight For Sunlight confirms international release
Album out worldwide on July 28, 2014
Over the past months Treefight For Sunlight has released two amazing singles leading up to the release of their 2nd album Pizza - an album that truly raises the bar, not just for Treefight For Sunlight but for the state of adventurous pop music anno 2014.
The album is complex yet immediately appealing and catchy. Treefight For Sunlight’s signature sound of three lead-vocalists, multi-layered productions and old-school instrumental skills has been taken to a whole new level on Pizza.
Band members Morten Winther Nielsen, Mathias Sørensen, Niels Kirk & Christian Rohde Lindinger have created a new creative space on Pizza. They’ve been in charge of pretty much every aspects of the process having recorded most of the album in their own studio, mixed their own tracks to the level of almost-done where they called upon notable Danish engineers Anders Schumann and Mikkel Gemzøe to finish and perfect the mix and master. Singer, composer and guitarist Morten Winther Nielsen has created the music videos and the artworks is made by the band in collaboration with Amanda, bass-player Christian’s girlfriend.
Pizza consists of 9 tracks wrapped in a production constantly penduling between the analogue and the digital. Treefight For Sunlight’s impressive vocals and instrumental skills are omnipresent and so is their very inventive use of computer editing.
“We recorded the drums on tape in an attempt to escape the endless editing capabilities of the computer. But we couldn’t resist its black hole of options constantly pulling us closer with an enormous gravity. We cut, stretched, pitched, messed around with a wealth of effects and sampled for what seemed as an eternity. It wasn’t until the mixing process that the album came together as a complete universe - a musical pizza.”
The single "Somewhere in the Future" was an impressive piece of work that takes Treefight For Sunlight’s insanely catchy pop melodies and explosive rhythmics to even greater heights.
“Come Closer” was the energetic and very danceable 1st single building the bridge between the indiepop of their 2010-debut Treefight For Sunlight/A Collection of Vibrations For Your Skull (Tambourhinoceros/Bella Union/Friendly Fire) and the eclectic and maximalistic genre-mashup that is Pizza.
