On their 12th studio album, And Also The Trees continue their recent resurgence, as impressively shown with their most critically acclaimed album in their illustrious 30-year career ‘(Listen For) the Rag and Bone Man’ in 2007. Inspired by recent acoustic ventures, ‘HntH’ reinforces their ability as masters of atmosphere, melody and drama! - Recorded in the heart of England and a dilapidated house in France, ‘HntH’ evokes a kaleidoscope of characters and scenes. And Also The Trees always painted pictures with their music and lyrics, ‘HntH’ takes this to a new level. Singer and lyricist Simon Huw Jones creates protagonists rooted in their environment, be it by the sea, deep in the countryside or lost in an edgier urban setting. Guitarist Justin Jones illustrates his stories with delicate and intricate arrangements, developing his influential and distinctive orchestral-style guitar sound with flair and imagination – the guitar as raconteur - embracing influences from England, through Europe and on to the Mediterranean. And Also The Trees present ‘HntH’ as an entire ‘novel’ of an album. The album’s subtle shadowed beauty and intense quality are a result of recent intimate live shows in bizarre spaces, where the proximity of the audience enveloping the band, created a unique and magical feel reflected in this work. Hunter not the Hunted breathes and pulsates with its own pace. Essentially original, complex yet sparse, this is an album greedy for a contemplative audience whose likes could bring to mind the works of Mark Hollis, Leonard Cohen, Scott Walker, Marc Ribot or Patrick Watson.
