Old Trees – “Velvet Moonlight” (prod. by Choachi)


A lush and dreamy track with hypnotic textures, “Velvet Moonlight” is the first release in three years from Old Trees. The project was formed in 2015 by Zachariah Watson, who desired a “more free, experimental, anything-goes environment,” compared to former band Time Pilot. Fond of texture-heavy genres like shoegaze, psych, and noise, Watson’s aesthetic shows itself in quality form here. The production from Choachi blends programmed drums with haunting vocals and a concluding guitar-based fervency. Hopefully we’ll hear more from Old Trees soon.

“Velvet Moonlight” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of October 2019’ Spotify playlist.
