With a debut album set to release this year, Oslo-based outfit Over the Trees have released From The Sidewalk, which was an unexpected beauty on first listen.

From The Sidewalk meanders along with a haunting ambiance and guitars that shimmer between delicate percussion. “From the sidewalk I can barely see/ A pair of eyes smiling back at me/ But I’ll be fine,” sings the angelic vocals followed by trance-like “oooh’s” that embrace you with the comfort of a thousand suns steeped in the glow of love. Leaves that burn with the color of the ocean soar in a climax of brilliant guitars and crashing drums before resting on the shore of the vast sea.
