News: Ah Trees | ‘Team Sports’ Single Release & Launch | The Bird

posted in: News | 0

Pop-inclined five piece Ah Trees have carved out a funky, fresh vibe with their latest single release Team Sports. Having amassed local acclaim on the back of two single releases (Chippy and Bodies), and a finalist spot in this year’s Path to Laneway Showcase, the boys will launch their third single Friday 16th September at The Bird.

Produced by Tone City’s Sam Ford (Pond/Abbe May/Peter Bibby), Ah Tree’s latest offering is a 60’s inspired psychedelic tune that’s unmistakably contagious. The track explores a hazy psychological realm where reckless indulgence, sex and isolation intersect. Frontman Ryan Adair’s vocals channel this moodiness, while the funk-influenced guitar hooks and tight grooving bass line interlocks with a disco rhythm that is altogether dark, danceable and hooky.

The launch will be the first chance audiences get to taste tracks off the Perth boys’ upcoming self-titled debut EP, which will be released in November this year. Comprising of Ryan Adair, Charles Douglas, Harry Livings, Zach Taylor and Troy Stockley, Ah Trees have shaped a sumptuous live set that they will take on tour nationally in November. The first twelve months for the band have seen their arresting live sound honed by a spate of local shows, including WAM Festival, Beaufort Street Festival, and supporting the likes of Tired Lion, Gypsy & The Cat, Katy Steele and Jeremy Neale.

“The song’s writing and recording was inspired by other groove artists like Whitest Boy Alive and Foals. The chorus idea was originally a lot happier, though we wanted to add greater depth so arranged the chords to have a more longing / sombre feel” – Ryan Adair.
