Announce Forthcoming S/T Debut LP

Download Delay Trees’ First Single “Cassette 2012” (Available to Post)

Finland based group Delay Trees is proud to announce the release of their full length debut on Friendly Fire Recordings out on May 10. The shoegazing quartet is originally from Hämeenlinna, Finland but currently reside south of Helsinki where they constructed the album with Finnish musician and engineer Julius Mauranen. The wintry landscapes of their beautiful surroundings are ever present in their sound, bringing to mind Scandinavian artists such as Sigur Ros and Mew.

Delay Trees (a name taken from their love of reverb and forests alike) started when Rami Vierula(vocals/guitar) started writing about the pressures of growing up, unemployment, and the long Finnish winters. As a result of common musical backgrounds and taste he started creating new songs with Sami Korhonen (bass/synth) and Lauri Järvinen (backing vocals, guitars, synth). With addition of drummer Onni Oikari the ethereal sound developed into full bodied melodic dream pop. Before teaming up with Friendly Fire Recordings for the forthcoming release, they put out their 2008 EP Soft Construction on Finland’s legendary independent label, Johanna Kustannus. Recorded in a friend’s home studio, the EP was the defining spark that generated the band’s international acclaim.
