“For all its electronics and mechanics, ‘Weights and Stones’ is viciously human,” says Atwood Magazine of latest track from band’s upcoming full-length.

Hear “Weights and Stones,” the latest single by Tree Machines!
“Kansas-bred, Los Angeles-based duo Tree Machines are a band you should get familiar with. With vocalist Doug Wooldridge leading the way, the clip looks like vintage L.A., you know, from the ‘80s like ‘The Terminator’. Oh, and the song rocks too.” – PureVolume on the “Waiting On The Sun” music video by Tree Machines
“Raw feeling that comes from a deep, dark void within. For all its electronics and mechanics, ‘Weights and Stones’ is viciously human.” – Atwood Magazine on “Weights and Stones” by Tree Machines
After releasing a debut EP in 2015 that contained its hard-to-ignore, first-ever single “Fucking Off Today,” the members of then Lawrence, Kansas-based band, Tree Machines left mid-western malaise behind to move into a house in the tiny Los Angeles neighborhood of Canoga Park.
There, vocalist and lyricist Doug Wooldridge, his bandmate Patrick Aubry, and producer, engineer, and drummer, Mike Giffin (all three contribute to the various instrumentation and music of Tree Machines), turned the house’s garage into a tracking room, and began creating the first full-length Tree Machines album Up For Air, scheduled for release in late 2017.
Two years since the release of that first EP, Tree Machines presented “Waiting On The Sun,” the first single from Up For Air, followed by the song’s lyric video, a remix from emerging producer :DFACE, and now, the track’s epic music video.
“The shoot began after a couple drinks at a dive bar near the Paradise Motel,” explains Wooldridge about the music video’s sequences which prompted PureVolume’s references to “The Terminator” in its premiere coverage of the clip. “We had just wrapped up a few establishing shots when some patrons of the motel left the room we were parked in front of and left the door wide open. We spent 30 minutes filming inside a room we hadn't paid for hoping that the couple that had left weren't gonna drop back in,” he says.
With the completion of Up For Air drawing near, Tree Machines is also sharing a second track from the album, “Weights and Stones”.
“In our old band, Doug and I had always talked about an electronic component to our songs,” explains Aubry of the track. “We were listening to Radiohead’s The King of Limbs, Alt-J’s debut, and Glass Animals. Needless to say, after forming Tree Machines, and as we were working on 'Weights and Stones,' we were enjoying taking it to an electronic, clubby type of sound. And then we heard Lewis Del Mar’s song ‘Loud(y),’ and it really opened our eyes. I think of ‘Weights and Stones’ as our official ‘hello.’”
Up For Air, the debut album by Los Angeles-based band Tree Machines, arrives in 2017, preceded by the singles “Waiting On The Sun” and “Weights and Stones”. Members of Tree Machines are available for interviews. Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
