Tree Machines built a safe room in Los Angeles. Not for security of the conventional kind, but for a place to unleash, and make the kind of music that is at once vulnerable and strong, without fear of consequence. Here, Douglas Wooldridge (vocalist, lyricist), bandmate Patrick Aubry, and producer Mike Giffin (all three contribute to the various instrumentation and music) have been creating Up For Air, the debut Tree Machines full-length album. Today, the lyric video for the track “Weights and Stones,” premieres exclusively at VerbicideMagazine.com.

“​​’Weights and Stones’ represents us releasing of all of the old ideals of our previous band,” says​ ​​Aubry. “Our old band was comfortable in a mix of math and post-rock, but​ ​​​Doug​ ​and I had always talked about an electronic component to our songs. We were listening to​ ​​​Radiohead’s​ ​​​The King of Limbs,​ ​​​Alt-J’s debut, and​ ​​​Glass Animals at the time, and we were ready to embrace it. I think of​ ​​​’Weights and Stones’ as our official ‘hello.'”

Up For Air will be released in 2017, and the band will be heading out on tour in June — dates are below.
