Ho-Ho-Holidays Are Coming: The Forest & The Trees

Tis' the season to be merry (both in the drunken and jolly sense) and I am bloody madly merry at the moment. SO, without a doubt New Narcotics will be devoting some time each day to allow your ears some holiday happiness via some musical merriment!

I may not be Santa (despite my best attempts) but I can give the gift of spirited sounds of the most wonderful time of the year!!!!!!!!!

On the 12th of December,
New Narcotics gives to you...

The Forest & The Trees

Joel and Linnea Edin are a married Swedish couple who decided to make some music for their friends one holiday season, before realising the two of them sounded pretty darn pretty on record. So, they became The Forest & The Trees and branched out into more general tales of heartbreak and love, set to a jaunty indie pop soundtrack, fleshed out with a wonderful hook or two along the way.

Here is one of those first Christmas presents, originally for close friends and families, and now for the whole wide world! 'Santa Claus is Coming' bops along through a wilderness of bells and percussion and a gorgeously entwined vocal duet, with the striving vocals of Joel and the harmonious tones of Linnea, wrap the whole thing in a beautifully sonic ribbon. AND ALL FOR FREE!
