Synopsis

Album Description
French quartet Cyann & Ben create a dark and worrying universe tinted with melancholic beauty. Their debut album, Spring, was a hazy calliope ode. Happy Like An Autumn Tree continues to traverse the seasons with a captivating album that?s as rich and beguiling as the fall?s harvest, bearing the short lived fruits between the summer?s sweat and the winter?s crisp chill. Happy Like An Autumn Tree is a hypnotizing, oneiric collection of epic rock for our favorite season.

A welcome follow-up

"Cyann & Ben are back, thankfully, and sooner than I would have expected. I was eagerly anticipating this album, and wasn't disappointed. Generally more intense and driving than Spring, the latest release is also more musically diverse. The addition of electronically modified feedback washes are new, and there's more (analog) synthesizer work, as well as a more pronounced organ, which lends the album the same haunting sound by rather different means (although there is still a rich mix of acoustic instruments). The laconic vocals are much the same, but we hear less of Cyann on this release. A minor complaint, but she does have a lovely voice. It's certainly the mark of a strong band to be able to vary their method but still retain a recognizable and unique sound. Now how long will I have to wait for more? Now that they've given us two very strong releases, I'll have higher expectations than I do with most groups these days."

"I really like this album...much stronger and upbeat than their previous work...Cyann and Ben & M83 are the best to put on after a late night out...recommended for anyone who likes foward thinking music..."
