delay_trees_promo_2013_2

Delay Trees were formed late 2007. Since 2009 Delay Trees have released two EP’s and a two albums – 2009’s ‘Soft Construction EP’,  2010’s self titled debut album and 2011’s ‘Before I Go Go EP’. Delay Trees 2nd full length album Doze was released via Soliti in Autumn 2012.

Delay Trees return with their third full length album Readymade, which  was released in Finland in January 2014.

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, postrock, ambient pop and indie rock. Delay Trees feel dream-pop comes closest to describe their sound.

Selected reviews for Readymade

Sounds Better With Reverb “‘Readymade’ is for the most part a sedate affair, full of beautiful dreamy pop tunes lashed with delay and reverb.”

When You Motor Away ”On Readymade, their third album, Delay Trees display a remarkable ability to create songs that are rich in texture yet melodically light.”

Beardfood (Review, 7/10)

Desibeli.net (Interview in Finnish)

Nordic Vibes ”This is an album where the sounds fit together. It makes sense. It makes me grateful. And it makes me want more.”

All Scandinavian (Perfect Heartache)

Austin Town Hall (Perfect Heartache) “I liked their last album, but if they keep writing such incredibly well-crafted tunes like the one below, then I’ll surely declare my love when it hits the streets.”
