Single released 06/02/2011
Sometimes It Kills / No Flag is the debut release from the already much praised Visions of Trees.
Visions of Trees are Sara Atalar and Joni Juden. They met in the end of summer 09 and started hanging out and jamming at a friend's basement in Dalston, East London. They wanted to make electronic music. They believed that electronic music offers an endless spectrum of sonic and visual possibilities. Music and aesthetics coming together – both were hugely were important to the duo right from the start.
The more they talked the more they realized they shared ideologies and perspectives on alienation, escapism and solitude, but also on things pure, beautiful and real. They shared a love for pop songs, r n b and dance music from the 90's. Outside of music, they both drew on their respective histories, memories, things that have and continue to haunt them, the unconscious and nature.
"With VoT we want to create our own universe and our own wilderness, something bit other-worldly that has been sculpted by the city and the reality we live in and a longing to be somewhere else."
Since their conception Sarah and Joni have been busy cutting their teeth on the gig circuit and have toured or played shows with the likes of Mount Kimbie, Everything Everything, Sleigh Bells, Neon Indian, Memory Tapes, Becoming Real, Actress, Bear In Heaven and Teeth, (amongst many more). They also nailed slots at Glastonbury, Camp Bestival, Bestival, Truck Fest, Offset SWN.
Neither have they been shy of turning in a remix or two – so far for Comanechi, oOoOO, Everything Everything, Alice Gold, Teeth, A Classic Education, Memory Tapes and D'eon.
