Former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic and his new band Giants in the Trees have released their first single, called “Sasquatch.” The band formed last year after a jam session and has played a handful of dates in their home state of Washington.
“Giants in the Trees are a Rock Band hailing from Wahkiakum County, Washington,” the band’s bio states. “The quartet is inspired by the environment and culture of the Lower Columbia River. Musicians Jillian Raye, Erik Friend, Krist Novoselic and Ray Prestegard have created a sound that could best be described as Pop / Rock. The band is not offended by terms like schmaltz. On the other hand, there are heavy groove numbers, screaming slide guitar and accordion. There is even an anthem—so raise your arms with the phone flashlights.”
We’re waiting on more info from Novoselic on a full album, but check out “Sasquatch”:
“Sasquatch” is available now on iTunes.
