Taken by Trees
East of Eden
(Rough Trade)
Releasing: 8 September (US)


Victoria Bergsman releases her second album as Taken by Trees. The globe-hopping Swede has worked with the Concretes and Peter Bjorn & John as she developed her exploratory sound. Bergsman wanted to do something very different on East of Eden and record outside modern Western studios, so she trekked to Pakistan to explore her love of Pakistani music and work with Sufi musicians.
