Intimate, Touching New Record Out Now From Oh Land

FamilyTree is an album that takes the listener through the process of love, pain, and life, and finding ways to accept the uncertainty of reality. From a track like “Brief Moment,” which is a hint at love without an explanation, to a track like “Human Error,” which is an acceptance of things not playing out how you planned, and embracing that feeling. “Family Tree” is finding confrontation, forgiveness, and healing in those moments in life that are hard, but that you can’t control. “Make My Troubles Beautiful” is finding the beauty in the struggles one is sure to experience existing as a human in this world. Family Tree is an “evolution into adulthood” for Oh Land – using art as a way to put pieces together that might not fit the way they were originally expected to, but that mold together beautifully in the end.
