Krist Novoselic's New Band Giants in the Trees Releases First Song 'Sasquatch'
publish date: 2017-07-31
Last year, former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic formed a new band, Giants in the Trees, along with Jillian Raye, Erik Friend and Ray Prestegard. Up till now, they’ve mostly played locally around their home state of Washington, but last week, they released a music video for their first official song, a folk-rock harmonica jam called “Sasquatch.”
According to Giants in the Trees’ Facebook page, the members met through their involvement with the local Grange organization in rural Skamokawa, Washington. As you might imagine given that background, they’re heavy on environmentalism and community. (The band’s list of “personal interests” includes “Inclusive Democracy, Humanity, Peace, Prosperity, Sustainable Living, Compassion, Community, Decentralization.”)
