As music is becoming more available within the evolution of technology and, with it, comes a higher quantity of production, a line is being drawn to consider what we have and what we had. The latter attempts to attain similar qualities of a musical past or at least attempt to harness the positive aspects from what is considered to be the past. Mumford and Sons and Fleet Foxes can be added to this ever-growing list. Like practically every decade since the 1950s, the revival of roots music has become a major influence in new bands of the early 21st century. Treetop Flyers do this with grace. Their opening track, the beautiful ‘Mountain Song’, fuses a mysterious Americana sound with a graceful timelessness. Musically, the acoustic guitars dance and sparkle for the entirety of the EP while the electric guitars glisten and set the tracks on fire. There is a fighting prettiness that one can be content with, however nothing particularly wants to contrast or take it to the next level. The whole thing works though because of a slight variety, but it is its lazy and obvious influences (I could probably pick Willy Mason, Bob Dylan and Neil Young as a quick list) which ultimately let it down, because, at the end all I can hear is the Eagles. Horribly, the beauty in the music is also its downfall. Perfect production and well-written songs but there is nothing to cement a memory and all that remains is a list of more well-known artists, which is a shame, because it really is lovely.
