We’re always on the search for new music here at TNF HQ, and if there’s anything we’re really excited to introduce you to, it’s bands with only 3 members.

Young Mountain premieres new music video for “Lost Tree”

Sweden’s Young Mountain are hot off the release of their debut album “Lost Tree”, which released in September via Zegema Beach/Through Love/Miss the Stars/Pundonor/Dasein records. Focusing more on atmosphere rather than aggression, the screamo/hardcore group have made a name for themselves across Europe, performing at Miss the Stars fest and Fluff fest, two notably large screamo festivals. A few months back I had the chance to interview the band (which you can find here), and today we are happy to be able to premiere their new video for the titular track, “Lost Tree”, which you can find below.

Lost Tree has definitely made my year end list: with the fantastic performances from the band or its brooding atmosphere coupled with nice use of string work, the debut is a great addition to the their discography and definitely has this listener keen to hear what the future has in store for the guys. Be sure to give Young Mountain a like on Facebook and check “Lost Tree” on Bandcamp, your favorite streaming service, or by purchasing a physical from Zegema Beach Records or Through Love Records.
