The Halo Trees sign with COP International
The renowned US indie label COP International (Stabbing Westward, The Cassandra Complex, Beasto Blanco etc.) recently signed the Berlin band The Halo Trees. The group around singer/guitarist Sascha Blach describes their music as Deep Dark Indie Rock, which includes elements of Post-Punk, Indie Rock and Post-Rock. The dark Rock sound is characterized by complex arrangements in which the violin also has a fixed place, as well as the frontman’s deep melancholic vocals. In the past, The Halo Trees have been repeatedly compared to bands like The National, Lambchop and Mark Lanegan. After the outfit recently released a few singles on their own such as “Mr. Abundance” or “The Beginning Of Something Beautiful”, the next record “Where The Deep Ends” will be released in spring 2024 worldwide via COP International. The band promises an introspective headphone album with a warm, organic sound that contains lots of little details. The record release will be preceded by the first single and music video still this year.
Christian Petke, label boss of COP International, says about the signing: „I am genuinely thrilled to join forces with The Halo Trees. Their music exudes an introverted, deep, and intensely quiet post-punk vibe that resonated with me on a profound level. Sascha Blach, a truly prolific songwriter, has crafted something extraordinary, and I’m eagerly anticipating the moment we can unveil their incredible new music to the world.”
Sascha Blach from The Halo Trees is pleased: “I know COP International still from the first incarnation of the label and have therefore been following Christian’s work from afar for a long time. I think it’s great that he has revitalized the label and is now expanding musically. In our conversations he proved to be a great idealist and a very likeable person. I see it as a good sign that our first Zoom call lasted over 2.5 hours. So I’m looking forward to what I hope will be a long-term collaboration and I hope we as a band can take the next step.”
