Watch “Sympathy” Video HERE

 “There is the symbolism of the ringing church bells and there are the aching hearts weaving through the songs on "Sympathy," and yet, with most of the subtlety and the calm demeanor, you get a sense that nothing's going to make this pain go away. Nothing's going to make any of this better. There have been lies spoken. People have been misled into thinking that the empty feeling can be overcome. It's simply not true. It can only be prettied up. “ - Daytrotter


“The album’s most uptempo track, “Four Days Straight,” suggests that when the grieving’s done, Eisland and his bandmates are capable of uncorking a few Modest Mouse-like indie rock anthems.” 
- Metromix


“On such cuts as the gentle, ukulele-driven title track and the guttingly melancholy acoustic ballad "Where You Came From" Eiesland still seems enamored with the solo, bedroom recording approach and in that sense brings to mind the work of the late Elliott Smith.” 
- Allmusic

Earlier last month, the band premiered their latest video for “Sympathy” with MTV Hive. Directed by Scattered Trees’ guitarist/keyboardist J.M. Harper, “Sympathy” is a stark, poignant exploration of love, loss, and redemption — themes the band touches upon in their recently released full-length record. Praising the video, MTV Hive’s Jason Newman wrote, “The clip is a mini-movie that looks like a deleted scene from Werner Herzog’s soldier-gone-mad epic “Aguirre: The Wrath of God” … it feels more like an artsy, methodical short film than the budget-conscious, lo-fi approach employed by many indie bands.” Watch the video HERE (feel free to post and share) and read MTV Hive’s piece HERE.

The band released Sympathy via Roll Call Records in 2011. The album is a stunning and ingenious collection of songs that reach for great emotional heights. It’s a rare, cathartic record that’s as heartfelt as it is therapeutic.

It’s been a whirlwind year for Scattered Trees. A little over a year ago, Scattered Trees was effectively broken up, with members of the band literally scattered all across the country. Then, lead singer Nate Eiseland’s father passed away, and as a tribute to his late father, Nate penned a series of songs on his acoustic guitar. With those acoustic songs in hand, the band came back together in Chicago and fleshed out the tracks, writing the songs that would become Sympathy. That album and the deeply powerful live show have been praised byNylonRCRD LBLNo DepressionConsequence of SoundBuzzine and others as an album that’s not to be missed.
