The Poison Tree is the new project by The King of France frontman, Steve Salett. According to Salett, the upcoming album has been a long time in the making…since high school, to be exact. Carefully crafted, The Poison Tree’s songs were developed with the help of a rotating cast of collaborators including Dawn Landes and Thomas Bartlett.
Check out “Come On Come On,” the first track released from the new effort. It’s rousing yet gentle. It envelops your ears in a swarm of gauzy piano. It’s just pretty gorgeous.
The band’s self-titled debut LP is expected in March 2011 on EmBarque.
