Taken By Trees (solo project of former The Concretes lead singer Victoria Bergsman) has been making music since 2007, so this is more of an ‘Introducing’ to you guys at Mahogany than to the music world at large.
Bergman’s voice has a vulnerability to it, and I love the way it sounds like she is almost speaking the verses rather than singing. There is something quirky and mismatched about the glockenspiels, string synths and bongo drums used in her latest single ‘Large’, but they come together to make an addictive whole.

Taken By Trees latest album ‘Other Worlds’ is out on October 6th.
