Cape Town, South Africa: what started as a two-man vision a little more than a year ago quickly mushroomed into a full band in 2017. Treehouse Burning introduced itself in January, out of the the blue, with a powerful single ‘Ledger’. The song featured guest vocals from Irish Metalcore artist Danny Bochkov of Follow My Lead; followed in April by another with USA vocalist Jonny McBee of The Browning. Last week, Treehouse Burning put out a third single via The Circle Pit with ‘Endless’, also featuring another guest, Elizabeth Grace.
‘Endless’ represents broader dynamism
Aurally, ‘Endless’ is a massive step away from the sound of the previous two songs; both of which were decidedly heavy. The new song demonstrates a surprisingly softer side to the band’s writing ability and dynamism.
“This song is definitely by far the softest song you’ll hear by us for a little while, although we’ll definitely be writing softer and perhaps even heavier music. There will never be any closed doors when it comes to our writing and music; if we want to write in a certain genre we’ll go for it.” ~ Jesse Kuhn (guitar, Treehouse Burning)
“We have such an extensive range of influences that it’s almost tough for us not to add in a surprise now and again. At times we have to restrain ourselves to keep the sound as cohesive as possible. I think we managed to pull that off on the Overdose EP. It’s a good taste of what to expect in future.” ~ Nathan Schacht (vocals, Treehouse Burning)
Of course, all of these singles make up a part of the lead-up to the band’s debut EP, Overdose, which is now complete and a release date pending. With that, Treehouse Burning is eager to arrive on the gig circuit.
“We’re working on fine tuning all aspects of the live performance at the moment. We want to enter the local scene as an unstoppable force.” ~ Richard Poultney (bass guitar, Treehouse Burning)
