We Are Trees

It's hard not to think of Grizzly Bear when first listening to We Are Trees, but singer James Nee sounds so much like Daniel Rossen it's inevitable. Although it's definitely not a bad thing, especially since Veckatimest and Yellow House still get quite a bit of play from us.

We Are Trees are a four-piece from Virginia, which in addition to Nee, include violinist Rocky Capizzi, cellist Pearl McReynolds, and drummer Josiah Schlater. Take a listen to our favorite "Sunrise Sunset" down below. If you like what you hear they're offering their 4-song Boyfriend EP over at their bandcamp for free download.

The band also has a myspace, where you can find a cover of Best Coast's "When I'm With You".
