Krist Novoselic of Nirvana fame has formed a new band called Giants In The Trees. The group has now released its first song “Sasquatch,” along with a companion music video, which can be viewed above.
“Sasquatch” is a catchy, power-chord-driven jam accompanied by folky harmonica riffs and bluesy guitar solos. The track’s stripped down nature-focused music video, which was apparently ultra-expensive (no, not really), features the band’s four members — Novoselic, Jillian Raye, Erik Friend and Ray Prestegard — inhabiting the woods.
Novoselic quipped about the video’s production in the comments section on YouTube:
“This video cost over $2 million to make. The reason is, it was shot on a soundstage and all of the flora is made from plastic, foam and other materials to get that natural look.
I bought the property the video is filmed on. To pay for the production I cut all the trees and am now building a golf course on the land.”
Novoselic and his bandmates created Giants In The Trees last year after meeting at the local Grange organization in Skamokawa, Washington. The group has, thus far, only played shows in their home state of Washington.
