Primitive Creatures was Church of Trees' first release and featured vocals by Felicity Decarle. Limited quantity available.
Take a cup of Grimes, add some finely ground Beach House, and sprinkle in a little of Verona and a dash of Purity Ring, et voila, Church of Trees, for whom being chill and a little other‐worldly comes naturally. The Ottawa‐based synth/dream pop duo comprises veteran composer, producer, multi‐instrumentalist Bernard Frazer and vocalist / lyricist Felicity DeCarle. They couldn’t be more different, but those differences have produced an EP that percolates with chill grooves, lush synths, catchy melodies, and lyrics that weave fantastical and other‐worldly visions with glimpses of a gritty reality.
The dreamy synth‐laden work received a very warm reception: “Scaling synths and fat bass grooves pulsate from ear to ear, their heavy 80s influence unbroken by DeCarle’s haunting melodies.” ‐Atwood Magazine, New York “ All songs on the Church of Trees debut EP were recorded, mixed, and mastered by Blinker the Star’s Jordon Zadorozny (Courtney Love, Lindsay Buckingham, Sam Roberts). The single Crumbs (There’s Only Now) and other tracks from the EP received much airplay in Tokyo, the UK, and across Canada on campus stations.
