Treefight for Sunlight is a four-piece indie pop band from North Jutland, Denmark. The group's current line-up consists of Mathias Sørensen (drums,vocals), Morten Winther Nielsen (guitar, vocals), Christian Rohde Lindinger (bass, vocals), Niels Kirk (piano, vocals). They are produced by Tambourhinoceros in Denmark, Bella Union in the United Kingdom, and Friendly Fire Recordings in the United States. They are known for their unique piano-driven melodies, their combination of folk and psychedelic influences, and their use of upbeat, and sometimes nonsensical lyrics.
Their self-titled debut album, Treefight for Sunlight, was released in the United Kingdom in February 2011, and received mixed reviews. Whilst general critical opinion was rarely against the album, concerns were raised that there wasn't enough power in it to ensure a successful career. Music blog DrownedinSound noted that while the album 'suggest[ed] potential' it was not well enough formed to earn a place in the UK music scene. By contrast, Clashmusic said of the group that 'the pace is infectious and small helpings will sweeten your day'.
The single "Facing the Sun" fared better, with The Recommender saying that the band captured the feel they were aiming for 'remarkably well'. The Guardian called it 'one of the most glorious things we've heard all year'.
