Who: Delay Trees, a four-piece out of Finland that makes dreamy, sweeping, shoegazey pop. Frontman Rami Vierula has one of those earnest, instantly likeable guy-next-door voices the Nords do so well (like Sondre Lerche) and the slow-burning tunes are consistently anchored in melody.
After putting out an EP in 2009 (Soft Construction), the band is set to release their proper debut, a self-titled full length May 10 on Friendly Fire Recordings. Check out the James Martin-directed video for the download track below, as well as Teemu Erämaa’s magical video for “About Brothers,” which started out as a short film about his brother, 3D animator Tomi Erämaa.
