The Swiss presents GIANTS in the TREES Last year, former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic formed a new band, Giants in the Trees, along with Jillian Raye, Erik Friend, and Ray Prestegard.The quartet is inspired by the environment and culture of the Lower Columbia River. They have created a sound that could best be described as Pop / Rock. The band is not offended by terms like schmaltz. On the other hand, there are heavy groove numbers, screaming slide guitar and accordion. There is even an anthemso raise your arms with the phone flashlights.
How did this blend of influences come to be? The band first met for a casual jam in the Skamokawa Grange Hall last spring. The players wasted no time at all composing their first two songs on that first day. They were hooked to the music and a band was born.
