CHARLIE TREES comes through with the video for latest infectious single ‘Trees’. First of several singles leading up to the release of his project Garden, ‘Trees’ sees Charlie immerse himself with a catchy, more dynamic sound that serves as the premise for Charlie’s introduction to the wider masses.
The track produced by long-time collaborators Yrk Rd, has a spacey and dreamy under-layer, with hard-hitting, aggressive drums and a compelling horn section all in one. This combination of differing elements gives Charlie a very distinctive sound, one that is laid-back yet allows Charlie to showcase his multisyllabic style all at 140bpm.
The accompanied visuals, directed by No1, fittingly filmed in the 1011 CT district of Amsterdam. The almost four-minute production demonstrates Amsterdam’s lesser celebrated aspect of nature and vast greenery tied together with its more widely renowned recreational activities that bring people together, as reflected in the cameos featured throughout the visual.
On the new single, Charlie says “Trees is an introduction to who I am. It represents me sonically, spiritually and geographically. I was in college and uni with both members of Yrk Rd and we smoked up everyday so it only seemed right to have them on the production. They both know me so well, I could tell they designed it for me and they got it spot on.”
‘Trees’ is set to reinforce Charlie Trees as not only a talented emcee amongst his peers, but also as an artist that’s here for longevity.
One that can appeal to the mainstream, without risking his credibility in the process…check him out below…
