SCATTERED TREES

Sympathy

2011-05-24

Growing up together in Chicago, the members of Scattered Trees have been in and out of various bands at various times. At one point, with all the members being drawn to different projects, it looked like they would go their separate ways. But tragedy struck with the death of lead singer, Nate Eiesland’s father. Inspired to write, and with his friends to help self-produce the album, Sympathy came to be. Sympathy is an album of quiet, multi-voice harmonies backed by well-produced, even lush instrumentation. The songs are full of melancholy and often end with a big crescendo of instruments and voice. All in all this is crushing stuff. Rebecca Ruth
