Tree – People (ft. Shelf Nunny & Lena Kuhn)

Contributed by Chris Gedos


It would be an understatement to say that the genre of grown up twee folk is oversaturated these days. From nihiti to Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr, the niche is ablaze with artists of various levels of acclaim, which is what makes the song “People” by SF artist Tree all the more impressive. Something about the rambling lyrics and piercing wurlitzer makes me imagine some cat on a guitar outside City Lights with a tin can and a tattered copy of Naked Lunch on the pavement. This is a rare song of great feeling which doesn’t get caught up in a pretentiously grandiose statement. I dare you to only listen once.
