PAN M 360 / TOP 100 : Trees Speak – Mind Maze 

· by Louise Jaunet

Trees Speak are a musical duo based in Tucson, Arizona, composed of Daniel Martin Diaz and Damian Diaz. The band’s sound is characterized by a combination of surrealist art, krautrock motoric-beat rhythms, angular New York post-punk attitude, 1960s spy soundtracks, psych, jazz, and 1970s synthesizers. The name Trees Speak reflects their interest in the concept of using technologies to store information and data in trees and plants, with the idea that trees communicate collectively. As with all their previous releases, Mind Maze is influenced by desert landscapes, creating a unique, captivating, experimental, and innovative sound. To fully understand this new album, create in your mind a misty labyrinth of distorting mirrors filled with the excitement of a film noir in which the victim, the murderer, and the detective are the same but do not know each other. If each one says the exact opposite, it is because they are right. You might say that this is a paradox. That is exactly what Trees Speak is talking about, as there is no more classical achievement of surrealism than the ensemble of a machine and the human being standing before it.
