The Trees 03:49
Tell me more about the light What’s happening in the movie What’s happening in the scene Are you running toward something or away from something What are you running from Is it dark or is it light Is it raining What’s the weather like Is this the part where you break down crying Is this the part where you make a decision to begin again Is this the part where you let something go Is this the part where you get a phone call telling you your apartment burned down Is this the part where you’re set free Is this the part where you jump Off the cliff and instead of falling you begin to rise up and levitate like in the dream you used to have when you were just a little girl and you would lie in bed in New Hampshire in mid-August after watching shooting stars from a reclining chair on the lawn and through the open window through the screen window you could hear the trees


The fourth single from our upcoming debut album LOVE IS THE MEANS (released 08/20/2021).

This is an unusual song, maybe our most experimental. It began as a sketch for James's score to the HBO series "Murder on Middle Beach" before drifting into Fellwalker land. The lyrics were adapted from a music therapy session that Cynthia & James facilitated at the Delaware County Juvenile Detention Center.

Featuring drumming by Dave King (The Bad Plus).

This release includes the instrumental version of the song, which is EXCLUSIVE to bandcamp!
