Secret Treehouse from Bergen in Norway describe themselves as being ‘on an everlasting quest to find the perfect melody’, and they certainly acquit themselves well on that score with the rousing Fear Of Frogs.
The track – which you can also stream on Spotify – is from their upcoming album and promises great things, with its somewhat melancholic take on the indie electro anthem and its left field, dreamlike lyrics.
The light, immersive vocals envelop the listener in a reassuring manner as the fusion of more rock accented guitar propels the track along with a sense of spirit and fun.
Add some soft echoes of synthwave and classic 80s synthpop to round off what is a sublime example of an atypical approach to the Scandinavian happy-sad sound that so many people, including myself, love so much.
The band had this is say about the track: “Fear of Frogs is about the fear of involuntarily (or not) misleading someone you love, and in that way preventing them from achieving their goals. And the feeling of just wanting to run away from it all, coz you’re afraid you’ll end up just doing damage”.
Fear Of Frogs is the first single from Secret Treehouse’s debut album The Big Rewind which is due for release later in 2019 – keep an eye on their Instagram and Facebook accounts to keep up to date with the band and news about the album.
