New release media kit
Double feature: Paper Cuts / Eyewitness
Sounds like the hazy shoegaze-days of this Helsinki-based, 2019 formed indie-quintet are over – at least for now. The tempo is up, bass lines crawl low and threatening, and the vocalist seems to be quite mad at something or someone. One thing remains the same though, a true Treemer trade mark – guitars are loud and plenty, while some of the riffs makes one wonder if the guitarists have moved on to work the hard rock -scene.
Goog kind of aggression
An act of violence in the shape of words…there’s your first lines of Paper Cuts, accompanied by an almost punk-ish musical take on the matter of one being verbally attacked and insulted. On the other A-side, what Eyewitness lacks in speed and roughness, is respectively gained in the sinister atmosphere created with a qrowling synth bass, sneaky snare drum and insanely jingling guitars.
These tracks are the fruits of a three day Treemer summer camp at Lammaskallio studios, with jamming and recording happening in between swimming, beer drinking and frisbee throwing. The aggression one can hear in the songs is the good kind – empowering and liberating, capturing the laughter filled easiness of those summer days.
The double A-side single is released on the 7th of January (2022). Available on all major streaming platforms.
