Last week I stumbled by chance upon The Honey Trees’ cover of ‘Edelweiss’ and have not been able to shake that haunting voice. Though I don’t make musical comparisons very often, after hearing some of their original stuff I can’t deny that The Honey Trees have the same feel about them as Lanterns On The Lake. Rich instrumentation and the ethereal vocals of lead singer Becky Filip combine to create gorgeous melodies that lodge in my head long after that last note has faded. Lovely stuff.
The Honey Trees are currently touring California in support of their recently released EP Wake The Earth and the best place to learn more is to visit their myspace.
