Under the imprint Land Of Trees Music, maverick singer-songwriter Land Of Trees released his latest single ‘See The Fire Dancing’ on the 21st of October. The skilled singer-songwriter recognises the sounds of the likes of Michael Kiwanuka and Ben Howard amongst many others as being influential to his music. Marcus Friman (aka Land Of Trees) has released three widely praised full-length albums to date with an approaching fourth one.
The extemporaneous banjo notes in the new track share a story about surrendering to the beauty and the healing power of nature together with it offering the possibility of an untroubled life. The reverberation of these notes is pure bliss, attesting to the unwavering innocence oozing from the song, which will purge listeners of their cumbersome worries as well as open a door to escapism into the generosity of mother-earth. The result is that this single is like a revered ancient mantra, useful and cathartic.
Land Of Trees tells us about how ‘See The Fire Dancing’ was created:“I wrote it on my banjo, which was peculiar enough to begin with, but when I played it to the band they were all mesmerised in their own way. It was an easy choice as our first single release for the upcoming album and I’ve never seen the band more intrigued to record a song”.
