Dylan Trees

Dylan Trees

BandFolkPop

The new psychedelic sound out of LA. Brit Pop meets California Indie. "The male/female harmonies blend seamlessly together, like two young people in love." Belle & Sebastian meet Pink Floyd. Trippy, flowing, dynamic live show; nostalgic, sun-soaked days on record. From the producer of Magnet Fields.

Biography

Comprised of a male/female lead duo, an eclectic rhythm section, and a saw/flute/keys player, Dylan Trees is a collective of like minded musicians centering around London born singer-songwriter Jeremy Simon and New York chanteuse Monica Olive. With intertwining vocals by the two, they offer textured and meticulous arrangements in the studio, while live they weave synth and guitar dreamscapes around the songs. It sounds both ancient and modern.

The band's new EP “Victoryville” (Mother West) was released digitally on September 25th. Produced by Charles Newman (The Magnetic Fields, Gospel Music, AM), the EP was recorded in NYC and Los Angeles. It is the product of the same sessions that resulted in the well-received "Three Times of the Day" EP, released digitally and on vinyl on Mother West in January 2012.

In 2011 the band contributed a track to Beat LA: A Benefit for Haiti alongside other LA bands No Age, Crystal Antlers and Best Coast. Their music has also been used in the feature film “Fling”, and the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival winning film “The Dungeon Master”, as well as an episode of A&E's "Intervention".

Building their name internationally and on the cred convention circuit, Dylan Trees have also appeared at SXSW, CMJ, and have headlined shows in San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, London and Paris.
