Futuristic synth rock
Arizona band Trees Speak look to 1970s Krautrock, synth drone, soundtrack music, and Bitches Brew-era Miles Davis for inspiration when putting together their dizzying experiments with electronics and song deconstruction. The band sought to confuse their listeners as much as they intrigued them, moving rapidly between ideas and sounds on their kaleidoscopic albums.
Trees Speak was formed by multimedia artist and musician Daniel Martin Diaz. Later joined by Damian Diaz, Trees Speak often draws on the cosmic night-time of Arizona’s natural desert landscapes. Their ideas relate to future technologies storing information and data in trees and plants. Trees Speak create their own powerful new landscapes of sound that manage to be at once contemporary as well as both timeless and with a sense of science-fiction futurism.
