Treetop Flyers – To Bury The Past [Album Review]

Tree Top Flyers are a London quintet that recently graced our inbox and are presumably named after the excellent Stephen Stills tune. Upon making my way halfway the first song, I was blown away. They combine big hooks, melodies I grew up on, and phenomenal harmonies. You can site all the old-school influences such as The Band & Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, but if you are looking for contemporary bands to compare, I’d point to The Moondoggies and Chief.

I haven’t been this excited about an EP since Alberta Cross’ The Thief & The Heartbreaker several years ago.‚  Check out “Mountain Song” below and then proceed to eMusic and burn up five credits for this excellent debut.

Their recordings so remind me of cottages in Northern Canada. Fall, carton of smokes, friends and whiskey. And an acoustic. And all that is good. These guys are the real deal.
