It is official. Singer-songwriter Land Of Trees has released his fourth LP titled Things I Don’t Know.. Yet. On the project, we discover the sombre yet hopeful record ‘Giving You My Notice’, a hearty mix of harmonies to soothe the soul. “‘Things I Don’t Know.. Yet’ is a step back to basics.” he shared, describing how he aimed to create music for music’s sake. And he has delivered, keeping things sonically cohesive, nothing overly complicated.
Land Of Trees’ music touches on the folky side of Indie music. Straying from the usual formula, he imbues his sound with the voice of a man raised in nature. There is a certain earthiness to his sound. He creates music grounded in his roots, elaborating on the stories from his life to give listeners a vacation from the office desk, where they can drift with the mist in the mountains.

CadetCarter, a band known for their indie-rock stylings that keep fans intrigued, have released the music video for their latest single, ‘The Best Part’. Both the single and the video were released today via 8 Ohm Records. The video was directed by Bastian Scholl, who uses the chance to explore childhood memories and nostalgia.
“I am so happy Cadet Carter has asked me to work with them on their new video. The song is probably the most optimistic thing that came out this year and I wanted to give the video a melancholic but still positive spin. I can not wait for everybody to listen to the song and watch the video!” – Bastian Scholl tells us about the joys of working on the video.
The band have been compared to the likes of Blink182, KnucklePuck and BiffyClyro and the comparisons stand true, as the soaring guitar riffs and spirited vocals take centre stage. The final impression of childhood play times resulting in long-lasting is the positive reinforcement we were needing to end the year on.
