Dead Tree Seeds – Release Music Video For “1796”
French thrashers Dead Tree Seeds release music video for “1796”. The track was taken from band’s coming EP Back To The Seeds, which will be released on February 11, 2022 via Music-Records.
“Silver Into Rain” is a thudding heartbeat of a song. Psychedelic and dreamlike, scattered with gorgeous moments – the laid back but totally shredder guitar solos are what make this track extra special. Luna Li shares, “‘Silver Into Rain’ is about longing to become a better self. In the song I’m lamenting all of the things about myself that I feel are holding me back in life, and how sometimes it can feel like everything you touch turns bad, turns to rain. Bea came in with the most angelic voice and perfect sentiment for the song, and brought it to a really brilliant place.”
