Brooklyn-based alt-rock quartet Tree River are many things: unconventionally catchy; unequivocally loud; inventive songwriters. One thing that the band themselves find to be their defining feature is that they’re perfectionists, and it’s easy to see why on ‘Time Being’, their mammoth third LP.
Produced and mixed by Kevin Dye (of Gates), the material on Time Being is a natural step forward, even more visceral and uniquely catchy than anything they’ve released before, with lyrics crafted over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, resulting in the exploration of characteristically dark and yet profoundly human themes.
Rammed full of irrepressible hooks and gorgeous melodies, this effervescent, warm and welcoming record is a future classic that rolls together universal fears, achingly specific anxieties, and an optimistic, all-inclusive sense of hope. Dense, smartly-written, and powerful, it’s a picture-perfect package. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
