'Our souls communicate
a common bond they celebrate
everyday I´ll take the choice
that couples our fate'
Giantree über sich
With their debut album Giantree have made „We All Yell“ their motto and want to shout their emotions and thoughts out into the world. Even before the album release on March 23rd 2012, the singles “Time Loops” and “Communicate” were played on various radio stations, from FM4 in Vienna to SoundPortal in Graz and Radio Fritz in Berlin, and were sung along to enthusiastically at live concerts. “Life Was Young” finally succeeded in climbing to the top of the FM4 Charts.
Since the album release, Giantree have been touring Austria, the Czech Republic and Swizerland as the probably most frequently performing band of their genre. They feel quite at home on the stages of well known festivals such as the Frequency in St. Pölten, the Szene Openair in Lustenau and on the FM4 stage at the Donauinselfest in Vienna.
Since 2011 the quintet has been working on a sound with prominent bassriffs, distinctive Snaredrums and atmospheric synthesizers. The confident guitar, the slightly rough voice of Hele Maurer resonating through highs and lows and the accompanying polyphonic vocals create a mosaic of strength and reflectiveness.
With the help of metaphors and poetic pathos Giantree’s lyrics speak of existential topics such as hope and fear, love and loss, confidence and despair – at the same time indicating a new start with every ending.
