Taken by Trees is the solo project of Victoria Bergsman, former lead singer for the Concretes. For her most recent album, East of Eden, Bergman undertook a dramatic and transformative trip to Pakistan to collaborate and record with local folkloric musicians. The resulting songs, including a cover of Animal Collective’s “My Girls” (re-titled “My Boys”) blur preconceived notions of the traditional and contemporary.
Under the pseudonym El Perro del Mar, Swedish vocalist Sarah Assbring sings with a deep and meaningful longing. Her tender, angelic voice is underscored by shimmering pop and folk melodies, expressing an inner turmoil and boundless desire. Fellow Swede Anna Ternheim will open.
