If you caught Treelight For Sunlight performing on the Clash Tent at this year’s Truck Festival, you would have been treated to one of the most pleasant surprises of the weekend; a flawless rendition of Kate Bush’s ‘Wuthering Heights’. And I mean, flawless. At the time I was sitting outside the tent, looking a little frazzled and burnt, and when I heard the high pitched vocal wailing of the song’s chorus I had to get off my bum and take a peek inside the tent just to make sure that Miss Bush wasn’t in fact making a guest appearance.
Signed to Bella Union, Treelight For Sunlight have released a brand new video for the song ‘Time Stretcher’. The video itself, created by the very talented hands of Jonas Kloch & Adam Gilbert-Jespersen, features the trials of a stop animation ragdoll as his terrifying nightmares become a reality; kind of like Aardman Productions meets David Lynch. The music also exists in that bizarre and sometimes perturbing moment of when the line between a dream world and reality is hopelessly blurred.
The band’s self-titled debut was released last February.
