The Dead Trees - "Back to LA"
From their Bio:
The Dead Trees formed in Boston in 2007 shortly before heading west to Portland, OR. After their debut EP, Fort Music, fell into the hands of Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr., he took the band on the road with him for two US tours. Since then they have released their debut full length, King of Rosa (2008), played shows/toured with MGMT, Har Mar Superstar, The Whigs, Adam Green among others, and have toured the world both opening for and performing as Little Joy's backing band.
"Back to LA" is bright and sparkly with a strictly radio friendly super pop chorus. The City of Angels can only hope that this song will be the kid brother to Randy Newman's "I love LA" which has grown a wee bit stale after being played one buhzillion times.
