And Also the Trees is the debut studio album by English post-punk band And Also the Trees. It was released in February 1984 by record label Reflex. The album was recorded in September 1983 and produced by the Cure's Lol Tolhurst. Their sound stood out from that of their gothic rock peers, as it was greatly influenced by the rural surroundings of Worcestershire (the band's place of origin), poetry (on the lyrical side) and Old England. John Peel described their sound as being "too English for the English".
And Also the Trees are an English post-punk band, formed in 1979 in Inkberrow, Worcestershire. They are characterised by their poetic lyrics and evocative music which are strongly influenced by the native English countryside. And Also the Trees formed in 1979 in Inkberrow, a large village in Worcestershire, with a lineup featuring two sets of brothers: Simon Huw Jones (vocals), Justin Jones (guitar), Graham Havas (bass) and Nick Havas (drums).
So This Is Silence" kicks off the Trees' debut with a semi-tribal drum rhythm sounding not unlike something from the Cure's Pornography, albeit lighter; given that Cure drummer Lol Tolhurst produced the record, such a connection makes perfect sense. However, the Trees weren't, and have never been, mere clones of the Cure despite Tolhurst's help and Robert Smith's long-term patronage, though at this stage of their careers the band's collective influences certainly hung heavy.

And Also the Trees still hadn't released any material at that point, so the Cure's Lol Tolhurst produced a single ("Shantell") and the band's eponymous debut album, released in February of 1984. Tolhurst's work made the Cure an easy pointer for And Also the Trees' sound, though the fragile beauty of Joy Division and the Chameleons also lend comparisons . The group moved to the German label Normal for 1992's Green Is the Sea and The Klaxon, released the following year.
