On The RCRD: Taken By Trees
Taken By Trees, the project of one Victoria Bergsman, goes full-on tropical on her new LP Other Worlds. Described as an 'impressionist poem for the Hawaiian Islands' where the album was recorded, it's a breezy concoction of emotionally intimate collection the dips into dub, island electronics and good old fashioned indie-pop.
We got Bergsman to tackle our On The RCRD questionnaire and found out how R. Kelly influences her, how to balance being chill and sincere and how the best instrument is the human voice.
