Kate believes that calling a song beautiful is a bit of a cop out. She says that you need to go deeper than that; so many things are “beautiful”, calling something else beautiful really doesn’t mean much. My first instinct was to say “Winter Trees” is a beautiful song, but maybe I’ve spent too much time with Kate because I don’t think I could leave it at that.
“Winter Trees,” off of the debut album Dead & Born & Grown, is soothing. Listening to this song will send you in to a peaceful haze. The gentle, ardent harmonies are absolutely hypnotizing. “Winter Trees” will fill you with the same feeling you get from watching a gentle snow-fall outside your bedroom window or sitting on a dock on a hot summer’s day dipping your toes into the lake. It is a beautiful song, but it’s more than that too.
