We were lucky to meet Chapel Hill's folk orchestra, Lost in the Trees, a few weeks back at our SXSW showcase. The symphonic band, led by composer and songwriter Ari Picker, has announced their upcoming, West coast tour, beginning April 19 at The Echo in LA. Next week, the band is also scheduled to shoot an episode of "Last Call with Carson Daly".
Picker with the help of Jerry Stifelman, directed the recently released music video, for LitT's newest album's title track, "All Alone in an Empty House". The song, which is said to be the tale of Picker's dysfunctional childhood, is portrayed visually with both pastoral grace and disturbing tension. Picker describes the video as following "the song's progression from bitterness to redemption."
Be sure to check back for our video of Lost in the Trees at SXSW. But until then, enjoy the "All Alone in an Empty House" vid as well as our photos of their performance.
