Going to Where the Tea Trees Are
After a stint playing guitar for a left-of-centre boy band, Peter von Poehl decided to give himself time to mature as he composed GOING TO WHERE THE TEA TREES ARE. So let's keep fans of loud sounds and high tuning at a distance, because Peter von Poehl's first album isn't loud-mouthed. Not that it's high ambition in composing and arranging isn't unmistakable. Between folk ballads and pocket symphonies basking in boreal luminosity, a slow pulse or a wistful heart, the 12 songs form an album throbbing with so many shapes and colors, several listenings are recommended to grasp it's full effect.
