candytree create music that endeavours to reach out universally to their audience through an eclectic embrace of styles; a marriage of urbane and spiritual, and emotional, ‘chic’; through the employment of ‘hooks’ and lyrical substance. We do not confine ourselves to any one particular style but are able to incorporate elements into a rounded identifiable ‘sound’. Using pop, rock and electronica to create euphoric sound-scapes. ‘Lynchian’ panoramas meet ethereal waterfalls, set in an urban backdrop.
We are purveyors of M.I.Y Space music (Make It Yourself) - (© Anthony Holgate 2010) - and can best be described as ‘pop-noir’. Imagine David Lynch and Portishead have been invited along to a pool party by the Pixies –skinnydipping optional.
