The extraordinary Victoria Bergsman releases a new Taken By Trees titled Other Worlds on October 2nd, via Secretly Canadian. Produced by The Tough Alliance’s Henning Fürst, the album finds Bergsman lifting inspiration from a retreat to Hawaii to soak up the tropical vibes. About the album she says, “I am hoping it can take you on a little trip, somewhere luscious and warm.”
“Dreams” is the first track lifted from the album, of which Bergsman had this to say about it:
I hardly remember my dreams these days. Sometimes, if I am lucky and I wake up very late, I find a thin film of another time or another life. I try so desperately capture this residue of a dream that it quickly fades.
But the kind of dream I am referring to in this song is more like a sense of longing, a vision of a place where things are quiet, like floating in the ocean off of Hawaii. I find that very hard, feeling at peace, feeling that things are OK just as they are. In the past I always feared that calm would lead to laziness, but now I see it more as a strength, something I want to achieve. The album is very much about that … and about finding love. It’s a feel good album.Tweet
