Realistically, I’m at my desk working (very hard I might add!), but mentally, I’m drifting away to a secluded island drinking a marg and finally getting tan. That’s what the first single, “Dreams”, off of Taken By Trees‘ forthcoming album, Other Worlds, has done to me. Maybe it’s because the song was recorded in Hawaii. Maybe it’s because I desperately need a tan. Or maybe it’s just what Taken By Trees’ mellow vibes do to everyone.
Taken By Trees is the name Victoria Bergsman adopted for herself after parting from The Concretes in 2006. She worked with Peter Bjorn and John‘s as guest vocalist for “Young Folks“, and wasted no time beginning to record as Taken By Trees. Her newest album, Other Worlds, is available for pre-order now and will be released October 2 on Secretly Canadian.
