Are you ready guys for an awesome knockout performance at *SCAPE’s The Ground Theatre? We’re absolutely psyched! But before we head there, we got the backdrop with an exclusive interview with The Trees And The Wild.
An emerging Indie band with grand ambitions, you’ll want to get in on how they got discovered by a recording label (you’ll never guess) and their advice to budding artistes.
How was the band formed and named? Is the band name a reflection of the music you create?
We have played since we were in university, we tried to create songs. We chose that name simply because we like that name.
Yes there are alot actually. We have different educational backgrounds that lead us to having various jobs. These various types of jobs makes us able to meet many different kinds of people with different attitude, social background, etc that influence the way we write songs.
We’re looking forward to playing with Deerhoof again in a venue that we have never played at before, hopefully we’ll get a great atmosphere from the crowd.
Some of the songs that we are going to perform are Tuah Sebak and Empati Tamako. I think it can be both ways, either unify or divide our culture, but in my opinion different song language doesn’t present a difference, because, once we perform the songs the language will be in-separated from the music itself.
We used Myspace to put our three demo songs, from this, a label found our band and finally offered a recording contract.
Never be afraid to try something new in writing music, maximizing all the available music platforms so that people can gain information about the band.
We recommend listening to Tenderfist, from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
To make at least 2 albums, tour Asia, Europe and hopefully the US and Africa, and have our own recording studio.
Catch The Trees And The Wild (ID) together with Deerhoof (USA) at *SCAPE, 19 June, 7pm-10pm! Get tickets to the gig here.
