Sprouting out of the grey industrial outskirts of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne from the remnants of defunct outfits on the North-East music scene, Ten Eighty Trees offer a heavy yet dynamic blend of rock. Since launching onto the scene 2 years ago, the band has earned a reputation for their infectious alternative rock anthems and enthralling live performances. Having performed alongside the likes of We Are Scientists, King No-One, All Us in Love and The Virgin Marys, the band has returned with their new single Born Free.
Released on February 5th, Born Free is a melting pot of brash, loud rock that in just under 3 minutes provides the right shot to the system. Adding a dynamic edge to the band’s discography Born Free is an edgy pulse driven track that steadily builds around a forceful drumbeat, a muddy insistent bass line and an uneasy guitar driven hook. This mesh of grunge rock serves as the perfect foundation for Nathan Newton’s blaring almost falsetto vocal melody, with him lyrically fuming against the ideas that fate and circumstances control your destiny.
A concise and catchy track with an industrious edge, Born Free perfectly encapsulates Ten Eighty Trees unrestrained immersive sound.
