Taken By Trees

Having taken inspiration from The Beach Boys and tropical Hawaiian climes to write new LP ‘Other Worlds’, dream-pop soloist Victoria Bergsman, aka Taken By Trees, will subsequently release that very LP via Secretly Canadian on 1 Oct.

Characterising The Beach Boys’ ‘Diamond Head’ and dub/reggae musician Augustos Pablo’s ‘AP Spezial’ as key to the record’s creation, Bergsman says: “Both of the songs have beautiful nature sounds added to them, of waves, thunder and birds. The Beach Boys song [also] turned me onto pedal steels and the Augustos Pablo song turned me onto the more dubby feeling”.
