We are delighted to welcome More Like Trees to The Social Club this year – Strum & Bass – acoustic dance music incorporating elements of Flamenco, Hip Hop, Drum & Bass, Dubstep, Folk, Jazz & Classical
Born of festival fields and raucous warehouse parties, More Like Trees radiate individuality from every facet. Their’s is a sound like no other – foot-stomping, heart-pounding, and infectious. This is an altermodern melting pot of styles reimagined as acoustic dance music. A meeting of drum n bass and folk with knowing nods towards flamenco and gypsy influences that they call ‘Strum n Bass’.
More Like Trees has a constantly shifting line up but at it’s core is the precocious songwriting talent of singer Joshua Whitehouse on guitar and the blurred hands of brother Matt Whitehouse on Cajón (box drum). Joining them on their critically acclaimed debut album is classical bassist Lachlan Radford, but you’re just as likely to see them performing with keys or beatboxer and often in collaboration with a profusion of the UK’s finest underground acts.
