Krist Novoselic, former Nirvana bassist, returns to music with his new band, Giants In the Trees, who formed last year. The band also unveiled their debut single “Sasquatch,” along with its accompanying music video. The clip shows Novoselic and bandmates Ray Prestegard, Erik Friend and vocalist Jillian Raye as they explore the woods. Check out the video above.
Novoselic offered some commentary on the video in the YouTube comments saying that the clip, “cost over $2 million to make. The reason is, it was shot on a soundstage and all of the flora is made from plastic, foam and other materials to get that natural look.”
He added, “I bought the property the video is filmed on. To pay for the production I cut all the trees and am now building a golf course on the land.”
For now, it seems we shouldn’t expect a full-length album anytime soon. Novoselic revealed to the Daily Astorian that he’s currently enjoying watching the band growing and slowly getting back into music.
Novoselic has taken on various music projects since Nirvana came to an end. In 1995 he formed Sweet 75, who released their self-titled album in 1997. He also formed Eyes Adrift with former Meat Puppets frontman Curt Kirkwood. Since then he’s worked with Flipper, Foo Fighters, Filthy Friends, and Paul McCartney. In recent years, Novoselic has been focused on politics with him as the board chair of the electoral reform organization FairVote since 2008.
