The Welsh five-piece The Echo and The Always recently released their debut album …and After That the Dark via Jealous Lovers and have now released their third music video from the album for the track “History of Trees”.
Drawing inspiration from the poem ‘Crossing The Bar’ by Alfred Tennyson, from which the band also found the album’s title ‘…and After that the Dark’, it’s a mellifluous composition which also carries a deeply personal meaning. As vocalist Laura Hancock explains “Lyrically the song is actually about mental health and its effect on the whole family; how genetics can often lead to mental health running through a family tree and how the suffering of one family member can have a profound impact on the whole family as they try their hardest to keep everything together.”
You can take a listen and video the video below.
