Head Down / Heart Up ‘s is one of my fav songs that I have heard this week. Super contagious and a beat that will want you to start toe tapping, Well no, more like get up and dance! In addition it has a great relatable message. Take a listen here.
Sometimes you have to let go to realize what you really have. Such was the case for Victoria indie darlings Towers and Trees, who less than one year after announcing an indefinite hiatus precipitated by babies, cross-country moves and career changes found themselves back together where it all started. The goal: to create music that celebrates life’s biggest twists and turns instead running from them, because as they say the best things in life are worth fighting for.
This is the sentiment behind infectious lead single “Head Down / Heart Up,” a jubilant anthem about letting the heart silence the head when life gets noisy. A fitting message to rally behind in these loud and uncertain times. Working with acclaimed producer Ryan Worsley (Dear Rouge, Said The Whale), Towers and Trees’ signature sound – anthemic hooks, infectious energy and poignant storytelling – has never shone brighter.
Towers and Trees has always been a heart-driven project – from their scrappy debut and its viral single Montreal to the heady anthems of 2015’s The West Coast. Every song is packed with authenticity and earnestness that is increasingly rare in this digital age. It’s what first propelled the group to the forefront of Victoria’s indie scene in 2013, earning them Zone @ 91.3 Band of the Month honours followed by finalist nods in CBC Searchlight and Music BC’s prestigious Peak Performance Project (the largest artist development program in Canada at the time). Their music has played on commercial and CBC radio in Western Canada and beyond, where they have toured tirelessly and performed notable showcases at Canadian Music Week, Break Out West, Rifflandia and Rock The Shores festivals, Khatsahlano Fest and many more.
