It’s Valentines Day, which probably means you’ll be spending the day in the arms of your loved one, frolicking around whilst you douse one another with heart shaped cards and whispered sweet nothings. Either that, or you’ll be moping around with a face like a spayed cat with your only thoughts of that of a lost love or one that was doomed from the very start. Lucky for both camps then that today’s session is brought to you by the seemingly sprightly Danish troupe Treefight For Sunlight who deliver something for everyone with their stunning performance of ‘What Became Of You and I?’.
For the lovers: sun-kissed harmonies, and twinkling keyboards all delivered in a perfect three and a half minute package of youthful abandonment. For the lovers scorned: the weighty lyrical underbelly, drenched in sadness and regret. Quite a feat to merge the two contrasting elements together, but Treefight do it with such effortless ease you can’t help but gaze on in pure amazement.
Their debut, self-titled album is released today via Bella Union. Read the TLOBF Recommended review here.
Session directed and filmed by Paul Bridgewater & Sebastien Dehesdin. Edited and produced by Sebastien Dehesdin.
