Delay Trees – another fine band from the connoisseur of Finnish indie pop label, Soliti, just released their sophomore effort this month. Doze is a fitting soundtrack of the warmer season withering into the imminent frigid days. Rami Vierula’s solicitous pensive vocals drift through a dreamy soundscape of melancholia, clinging into a sliver of hope.
Originally from Hämeenlinna in southern Finland, the quartet describes their hometown as a “hopeless place to live or leave.” Sometimes what haunts us results in the most sincere beauty and in Delay Trees case, the finest track on Doze: “HML”.
Listen to their bittersweet ode to the native place on and view music video below:
