Time in a Tree

Album: Yet to be titled (2018)


  • Raleigh Ritchie wrote this song about being in a busy state of mind, which he often finds himself in. He explained to NME:

    "Sometimes it can feel like you can't physically get out of it, or you can't mentally or physically bring yourself out of that… it's like having traffic in your brain. 'Time in a Tree' is just about that feeling of how complex it is to have those feels, and how far back those things can go."
