Stream Treading North’s “Canopy” EP
Treading North is a new local seven piece band that funnels a diverse array of influences into a kind of jazzy funk style. It might be tempting to use the “jam band” label except these guys are clearly aiming higher than that. Their sound is eclectic, oftentimes dreamy, melancholy, and occasionally weird – and they are pretty talented at pulling it all together into a cohesive sound. The sound comes together the best on “Julia,” a slow groove consisting of syrupy funk, gated drums, and mournful saxophone, which you can stream below along with the rest of the Canopy EP (self-released just a couple weeks ago).
