The Swiss presents GIANTS in the TREES Last year, former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic formed a new band, Giants in the Trees, along with Jillian Raye, Erik Friend, and Ray Prestegard.The quartet is inspired by the environment and culture of the Lower Columbia River. They have created a sound that could best be described as Pop / Rock. The band is not offended by terms like schmaltz. On the other hand, there are heavy groove numbers, screaming slide guitar and accordion. There is even an anthemso raise your arms with the phone flashlights.

TREES and TIMBER Aggressive Pop Supreme, with a generous side of deliciously sweet hooks, luscious lines, and juicy rhythms. We would love to put you into a melodic-induced coma, and dissect your ego, piece by piece.
Now set right here, relax, and slowly count backwards from 10……
RADIO ON Beer fueled, sweat drenched Rockn’Roll influenced by the 60’s NW sounds, 70’s and 80’s punk rock, and 90’s college rock
