Choice track from upcoming new album…
By Blurt Staff
Acclaimed NYC singer-songwriter Adam Sullivan, along with his band The Trees, has just released his self-titled debut and we’ve got an exclusive video to unveil for you. Check it out:
Sullivan originally appeared on the New York scene after moving there in 2007, subsequently releasing albums in 2009 and 2010. Later, he felt the need to assemble a band. Occasional collaborator Mason introduced Adam to Rob, who dragged along his friend Zack. Shows were performed, good times were had by all, and so it was decided: a band would be formed. And they would call themselves The Trees.
That album was created in summer of 2013, in a Brooklyn studio with no air conditioning – bringing a whole new meaning to blood, sweat, and tears. Produced by Mike Beck and mastered by Joe LaPorta, the self-titled album soars seamlessly between driving synth rock and indie folk, punctuated with brooding rhythms. From song to song, there is an ambitious ebb and flow to the varying styles and dynamics, each anchored together by a lyrical earnestness.
Next live date:
06/04/15 – Rockwood Music Hall – New York, NY – 7pm
