“Up next were The Treetops, a local band that had somehow passed me by up until this show; they are astounding and I am deeply upset that I didn’t discover them sooner. As a five-piece band, they were the largest group to take the stage at the show. Their sound, as a result, was larger than life. Their arrangements make full use of the talent at their disposal, with their two guitarists always playing parts that were distinct from one another, with bass guitar adding an additional layer and always backed up by a deep groove from their drummer. That’s to say nothing of their lead singer, Alexandra Tomulescu, quite possibly one of the most energetic and captivating performers out there right now. Between a voice that defies any attempt at comparison to an enigmatic on stage persona and a fashion sense that puts every hippy and textiles student to shame, Tomulescu stands out in my memory of the night. The Treetops put on an excellent and varied show and I hope to see much more of them as the year progresses; they mentioned on stage that an album is in the works and I can’t wait to hear it!”

“These guys are gonna go places. Make sure you don’t miss hearing them here first!”

– Shelley Stevens (Y108 Rocks! 107.9FM)

“… The Treetops were able to make their songs speak larger than their age as a band.”

– Chris Illich (The Sound)

“One of my favorite things about covering “rock” as a genre is all the different textures that fall under the same title. This track from The Treetops is fronted by a wonderful female lead vocal. It has an immediate tenderness to it that seems as much “folk” as anything. But the depth and crispness in the electric guitar make it feel like something a bit more grungy than what I typically call folk. It’s a genre blending track that resonates with my soul. I don’t know who it’s about, but the sentiment feels true.”
