"We could fly away, Wouldn’t it be wonderful? You’re wonderful."
Branches is a wonderful band that you must listen to! The songs on Thou Art The Dream are catchy and comforting. Both the male & female vocalists do a beautiful job of harmonizing their voices to one another—the music just adds to it all. It’s great. My favorite tracks from this album are: Planes, Helicopter, To The Desert, Humming and Rocking Chairs. This might be another “The Oh Hello’s” moment…meaning I will listen to their songs everyday for a long time (and wonder why I am incapable of both singing & playing an instrument). Guy & girl duets forever!
"I’m giving you a nightcall to tell you how I feel. I’m gonna drive you through the night down the hills. I’m gonna tell you something you don’t want to hear."
This entire album is great from start to finish. I love when artists use their music to tell a story; when the album is best listened to from beginning to end. It makes the artist feel human, a rarity these days. Hannah, the lead singer, knows how to use her voice to amplify the honesty of the lyrics. This is so damn good that my short review cannot do it justice. Just listen and support their debut album—I’m certain there’s a lot more to come.
