Reliably informed

Ten Eighty Trees’ newest single Little Sparks accentuates the chaos and riot of rock and the heavy bass of garage.

Their heated riffs and vocals seem as though they are vulnerable to combustion, with the song concluding in a firestorm of guitar. The vocals exemplify a sense of fragmentation and distortion as everything resists the desire to “not catch fire”. Lead vocalist and songwriter Nathan illustrates that the track, their shortest yet at two minutes 18 seconds, is “the sound of being pushed far beyond your limits and the consequences of that.”

The music is thus something that threatens, yet also resists, the breakdown of psychological and social control, which is most poignant within this statement of intent.
