We Are Trees: Girlfriend

Girlfriend Cover Art

Girlfriend is the second EP by Virginia Beach duo We Are Trees. The tracks are silky and melodic, with a slight lo-fi vibe. The music is acoustic guitar dominated but has wonderful electric guitar hooks coming in and out to complement the understated vocals. The tracks will sound familiar to anyone into indie music, but have superlative originality. Girlfriend is an eminently listenable record and seems to be fresh every time I hear it. No one thing stands out, but rather this is a balanced record that works on all the levels, vocally and instrumentally. Stream We Are Trees' Girlfriend and their first release, Boyfriend, at the link below.
