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".
