There's a pretty romantic story behind folk rock duo The Whispering Tree: classically trained vocalist Eleanor Kleiner and French bassist Elie Brangbour met at music school in London and decided to not just take their show on the road, but around the world. Their 2010 debut, Go Call The Captain, was influenced by their globe trekking. This year's follow up EP, The Escape, was released in April. "I think the underlying theme for all of the songs is a desire for boundless freedom," said Kleiner on the band's website. Single "No Love" is a driving, rocking, haunting stomp and shiver, both sophisticated and sultry. The Whispering Tree performs at the Black Mountain Ale House on Friday, June 21. 9 p.m., free. http://www.blackmountainalehouse.com.
