There is very little to know about We Are Trees at the moment. We can guess they are from Virginia Beach pretty wisely. But they haven't tweeted since December 2009 and they are apparently very good at Galaga? Their Bandcamp and pictures show they like to have a good time though, which is really what is important.
To this day, the duo has only released a few EP's named solely after relationship titles. On this year's Girlfriend EP they live up to their self-proclaimed "acoustic bedroom low fi folk pop." Lyrically they are a lot more mature than the way they come off. That is where most up and coming folk-pop band's like this have to truly show off. Most point to Grizzly Bear for vocal comparisons with this band which is admittedly spot on. That can beckon some minimal Fleet Foxes comparisons as well, but I hear the soft acoustic melodies next to driving percussion of Local Natives on their track from 2010's Boyfriend EP, "Sunrise Sunset," below. I guess in the end, those three are in the same boat, so I'll mix it up a bit and compare their laid back feeling to that of Fences. That's it for me, buy their newest release below for one dollar. Do it.
