A few words from Delay Trees on their new album

” The few people who have heard ’Readymade’ have said it’s our best release yet and I have to agree with them.Recording and writing it was exceptionally easy. The songs basically wrote themselves. When we hit the studio we just tried our best to copy the vibe of the first demos, trusted our intuition on everything and did very few takes on each song. We wanted to call the album ’Readymade’, since it felt very much like we had just found the songs instead of writing them. It’s like we had found a way to a mystical sphere of music that had overtaken us by surprise. After Doze’s dreamy soundscapes we’re glad we were able to create something different in the vein of the arpeggio laden jangly indie rock we’ve always loved. Playing together feels fresh once again and we’re very much looking forward to what lies ahead. “

The band have been tagged as dream-pop, cinematic pop, shoegaze, slowcore, post rock, ambient pop and indie rock. Delay Trees feel dream-pop comes closest to describe their sound.

“‘Readymade’ is for the most part a sedate affair, full of beautiful dreamy pop tunes lashed with delay and reverb. It’s a sleepy listen but great for a late night headphone session” Sounds Better With Reverb

“Each song offers the listener something, and each one has its own identity, yet they’re all tightly wound together to create a cohesive listen.Austin Town Hall

“What’s great about this album is that it isn’t entirely upbeat nor is it slow—it sends you on a roller coaster ride.” Noise Porn

“…here is evidence of a band fully aware of their strengths on an impressively atmospheric and moving third album.” Leonard’s Lair Music Reviews

“Doze is an almost perfectly polished package that will delight with both depth and airy atmosphere.”

“Doze is a great album, and will most likely be found on our Best Of list, when the time comes.” All Scandinavian

“The group’s 2012 release, Doze, is an ethereal and atmospheric escape from pop-conventionality, with drifting, moody compositions freely flowing from the start of the album to its completion.”

“Delay Trees aims to take you on a journey, musically speaking, carrying you on the wings of their harmonies into a distant land of pop resilience. This is when the album (Doze) begins to really take off, pushing your emotional state beyond recognition, into a hazy world of bliss and relaxation.” Austin Town Hall
