Far as we can tell, Treasures is still the solo project of BTW’d Londoner Hari Ashurst. So we’re not sure why the plural is there (other band with the same name?), since Treasures hasn’t changed. “Dartmoore” is built on a piano melody and the persistent, oft-repeated chorus: “I’m going home / Changes all the time.” We pointed out in the Band To Watch post that Ashurst isn’t afraid to turn up the vocals. Maybe he’s just more confident in what he’s saying/singing.
Treasures – “Dartmoor”
Treasures will have a debut LP out via Lefse in 2011.
