Free INFANTREE “Speak Up” MP3 from upcoming Food For Thought [EP] On Vapor Records
Infantree is a Los Angeles-based band which formed in 2007 with Alex Vojdani (vocals, lyrics, guitar, keys) Matt Kronish (vocals, lyrics, guitar, banjo) and Donald Fisher (vocals, lyrics, keys, bass, mandolin, guitar) as high school students in Calabasas, CA before solidifying the line-up in 2008 with the addition of drummer Jordan Avesar who provided not only a serious backbeat, but also a psychological glue.
Alex, Matt and Donald began playing guitar and writing songs in elementary school. They naturally picked up other instruments through jamming with older musicians that would not relinquish the ax. There’s a shifting, track to track, from one writer/lead singer to the next, and who plays which of nearly a dozen instruments. Yet, there’s a cohesive, rooted sound, to Infantree that completely belies their youth.
2009/2010 has been quite notable for the band, their song, “Overflowin’” from the self-released Tree-P has received spins on KCRW’s prestigious Morning Becomes Eclectic, the band opened shows for Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Portugal the Man and Daniel Lanois’ Black Dub performed at Outside Lands in San Francisco, the Bridge School Benefit concert and the recent SXSW Music Conference. The band also managed to play more than 200 shows on Santa Monica’s 3rd Street Promenade; one of which was filmed for GorillAcoustic.com.
With a full-length release in the works for this fall on Vapor Records, Infantree is set to whet music lovers appetite on May 4th with a mesmerizing platter of sensory candy; carefully selected morsels to contemplatively ingest underneath their shady branches. So dig in, climb up and experience a different view of what’s around you.
