VETIVER+ TREETOP FLYERS

“Closing out this year with my first time touring solo, in the UK.  Couldn’t’ be more excited for you to hear the songs the way I heard them when I initially wrote them.” Andy

Vetiver is the long-running stage and recording name of San Francisco’s Andy Cabic. ‘Up On High’ is his seventh studio album and the first since 2015. Vetiver has toured around the world on headline tours and supporting artists that include Wilco, The Shins, Fleet Foxes, Beach House, Bob Weir & Phil Lesh, and Vashti Bunyan. Vetiver craft nuanced, understated songs that reward careful listening, building a rich duality; a space where sunshine is only a chord away from melancholy, an introspective lyric underlies an extroverted chorus and subtlety tries to be outgoing in an effort to connect the dots of life’s ellipsis.

‘Up On High’ was recorded with longtime collaborator Thom Monahan (Neko Case, Bedouine, Fruit Bats, The Donkeys, Peter Bjorn and John, Beachwood Sparks, Little Joy). Instrumentation comes from an all-world cast that includes Eric Johnson (Fruit Bats, EDJ), Gabriel Noel (Kendrick Lamar, Father John Misty, Tyler the Creator), Dan Iead (Kevin Morby, Cass McCombs), Josh Adams (Bedouine, Wild Nothing), and Tim Ramsey (Fruit Bats, Little Wings).

London soulful country rock outfit Treetop Flyers return with their eponymous third album. Weaving blissful 60’s tinged West Coast Americana with a British rock’n’roll swagger, the album oozes with soulfulness, thanks to singer Reid Morrison’s rich, warm vocals, stunning close harmonies and the atmospheric warble of a Mellotron. The sound is boosted by the addition of a new groove-based rhythm section and just the right amount of triumphant, well-judged saxophone.

Feeling more comfortable in themselves than they have in a long time, Treetop Flyers are a band with a new lease of life and a new groove in their step. The soulful melancholy is still bubbling under the surface but this album feels altogether more triumphant, looking to the future with hope and optimism. There’s also a sense of exploration on this record, where things they had experimented with in their live show have crossed over to the tape machine, catapulting their sound to another level.

“This eponymous LP is a confident, polished affair that reeks of crossover potential” SHINDIG

“The result remains Treetop Flyers, but an improved version” ★★★ COUNTRY MUSIC MAG LIVE 

“Treetop Flyers blow the crowd away with an astonishing mix of gorgeous songs, demonstrating how much they have grown as a band since their 2013 debut album The Mountain Moves.” ★★★★★ THE UPCOMING

“It’s undeniable that they are pushing into wider realms than in their early material and sounding the more exciting for doing so.” AMERICANA UK
