Ah Trees hail from Western Australia (Perth), drawing accolades in Australia and beyond for a rock sound that’s enjoyably steeped in ’80s nostalgia — particularly of the post-punk and alternative variety. Following the release of standalone single “Nomads & Pilgrims,” earlier this year, the band is back with another single: “How Long Must We Wait,” released today. Glistening guitar twangs with a post-punk allure combine, touting a thumping bass line and dreamy vocals that contribute to a hypnotic sound. The bass-heavy verses glide seamlessly into expanding segments of guitars, the rhythm section remaining constantly impressive, on par with the sturdy post-punk influence. Ah Trees continue to rise.
“How Long Must We Wait” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of October 2018’ Spotify playlist.
The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Shoegaze / Post-Punk / Dream-Pop.
