Theo Travis – “Brilliant Trees” Featuring David Longdon

I’m not sure how I missed this one earlier this year, but Theo Travis released a song featuring David Longdon on vocals. It has a totally different feel than Big Big Train, and Longdon’s voice takes on what could be called a crooner tone. He could have held his own in the rat pack!

The lyrics to “Brilliant Trees” are rather haunting, but as it gets to the end it becomes rather heartbreaking. [Edit: “Brilliant Trees” is a cover of a David Sylvian song.] As he walks away from the camera into the trees, we know he won’t be coming back. Travis’ Duduk playing seems to have a dirge quality to it, especially in light of what has happened.
