BBC Radio Darlings Climbing Trees to Play Mondo.NYC

Welsh four piece folk-rock band Climbing Trees will be performing two sets at the second annual Mondo.NYC this week. With the band recently returning from their first European trip and deep into another jam-packed festival season in support of latest single FALL, the rest of 2017 will be spent bringing their music to new audiences. At Mondo.NYC, the band is set to perform two shows at the Delancey on Wednesday, October 4 and Saturday October 7 at 11 pm.

Formed in the Summer of 2011, Climbing Trees soon came to the attention of BBC Introducing with the distinctive folk-rock sound of their critically acclaimed 2013 debut album HEBRON. Recorded in isolation in the woods of Carmarthenshire, the band achieved playlisting across BBC Radio Wales before being announced as one of twelve artists to take part in the inaugural year of the BBC and Arts Council of Wales' Horizons project in the Spring of 2014.

As well as soundtracking the BBC's Real Valleys season and featuring in American documentary Fade To Winter, 2015 saw work begin on the eagerly-awaited and much-anticipated follow-up to Hebron before a string of dates in support of lead single "GRAVES", a track which also featured on the Reach Out: Welsh Rock For Refugees compilation alongside the likes of Stereophonics, Manic Street Preachers and Super Furry Animals. The Trees released "BORDERS" through Staylittle Music in the Summer of 2016 to rave reviews and a spot on the Welsh Music Prize shortlist, spawning further successful singles in the form of "TRACKS," "AMBER," and "LOST" and gaining airplay from the likes of Huw Stephens on BBC Radio 1 and BBC 6 Music's Tom Robinson.
