Ever since discovering North Carolina orchestral pop group Lost in the Trees last year via their amazing NPR Tiny Desk concert, I've essentially been looking forward to the release of their brand new album they've been constantly alluding to. Much like 2010's All Alone in An Empty House was inspired by songwriter Ari Picker's, troubled childhood, the new album A Church That Fits Our Needs finds a similar source of seemingly dark inspiration. The new album is Picker's tribute to his late mother who took her own life back in 2009. If the first single devastatingly beautiful "Red" is anything to go of, A Church That Fits Our Needs will be as equally resonant, if not more. The track features the lush orchestration and rich melodies the band is known for with Emma Nadeau's wordless vocalise providing a veritable cascade of emotion.
A Church That Fits Our Needs is out March 20th.
