Caught by the River

Cosmic Neighbourhood – Trees

1st October 2021

We’re thrilled to announce that Cosmic Neighbourhood’s Trees EP is to be the thirteenth release on our record label, Rivertones.

Trees is a dizzy collection of monocultural melodies, all captured in a place where old growth analogue drones burrow down into the earth and the wispy riffs from rock-hewn synthesisers reach towards the sky. It is the sound of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop being plugged in after being left out in the elements for a season or two; an all-natural psychedelic voyage into the beating heart of the British countryside. 

Cosmic Neighbourhood is the brainchild of Adam Higton, an artist, illustrator and musician based in North Yorkshire. Through a combination of collage, drawing, textiles and music, the work he makes is an ongoing documentation of the daily goings on of the Cosmic Neighbourhood – a mythical and mystical suburb where trees talk and leaves dance. Adam recently created a set of stunning new visuals and branding for Caught by the River. 

The Trees EP will be released digitally and on 7″ vinyl on 26 November, to coincide with National Tree Week (November 27th – December 5th). It is available to preorder here. Listen to track ‘Power to the Leaves’ below.
