Luxembourg-based indie rockers 'Seed to Tree' traffic in an amalgam of shoegaze, folk, new wave and Bon Iver-tinged indie-pop. Emerging in 2012, the group initially formed as a folk-oriented project around a group of childhood friends, their sense of camaraderie evident in their band name. 'Seed to Tree' began to make waves in 2019 with the release of their well-received sophomore effort Proportions and opening slots for Beirut, Snow Patrol, The Temper Trap and Tears for Fears, as well as tours across Europe. Refusing to rest on the laurels of these achievements, they continue to expand their cinematic brand of indie rock to stunning effect.
On their new single Major Lydian, Seed to Tree is taking a new turn on their musical journey, walking down the memory lane of new wave and dream pop. Their newest song is loaded with pop-cultural references hinting at David Bowie, The Talking Heads or 90s cult movie Trainspotting. But besides being an homage to all the influences that have been part of the band’s history, the song is mainly a realisation that the band Seed to Tree has become more than the sum of all their inspirations. After playing music together for more than a decade, the four musicians are finding their comfort of a home town in creating songs together that have an identity on their own.
