TREE | Stuck Down The Wrong Rabbit Hole

December 6, 2011 at 10:30 pm 2 comments

Sometimes the best thing I can say about an artist’s music is that it’s so good I wished I had created it, or every time I listen to it, it makes me feel good. That’s what I think when I listen to Santa Cruz’s Tree and especially his latest track, “Stuck Down The Wrong Rabbit Hole”, a song he created with the help of Beat Culture and Lena Kuhn. They’ve taken a simple, almost nursery-rhyme refrain, and wrapped it in plush, mind-blowing electronic arrangement: “Falling down, I’ve had enough / This rabbit hole has got me stuck / A flickering light about to die / When it gives out so will I.” This is a big sound. You’ll think you’re listening to a full-on orchestra of musicians. The song features distorted and twisted vocals, and a shimmering synth that’s like a kaleidoscope made auditory. There’s a brilliant amount of creativity to it, building into a swirl of instruments and sounds. But Tree is always in control. There’s a method to this melodic madness. And it’s flat-out sick. “Stuck Down The Wrong Rabbit Hole” will be featured on Tree’s upcoming 2012 release, “Splitting Branches”. Follow Tree at facebook and on soundcloud. Read more about Tree in an archived Their Bated Breath post here. — David D. Robbins Jr.
