CMJ Band to Watch: We Are Trees

It's a big few weeks for us Starkians, but we wanted to highlight a few standout acts from this years CMJ festival. The first of which is We Are Trees. The PR states: "this Virginia Beach band’s sound lies somewhere between the plains of Middle America and the cliffs of a Western Coast. The vocals, while drawing comparisons to Daniel Rossen of Grizzly Bear, are a mastery all their own, with sweeping “ohs” and cradling lyrics." All the songs we've heard stand up to some solid scrutiny, and the buzz around the critical watercooler has them pegged as "the next Local Natives." Well, that remains to be seen, but certainly a band to make sure you have on your list this week. CMJ shows after the jump! Their EP is $12 for both vinyl and digital versions, and $4 for digital alone. You can check it out here http://www.collectivecrowdrecords.com/store/we-are-trees-boyfriend-ep/
