14 Mar Be Forest – Earthbeat
Be Forest (@beforest3) are a band from Italy. They make layered and lush songs with driving drums, guitars that sound far away, and dreamy synths. Earthbeat is their second record, out in 2014. They’re coming up with a new album in 2016 or so, and have a new single out called Glow.
Wordless, but speaks volumes about the the upcoming sounds : somber, droning, gloomy.
02. Captured Heart
Slightly hopeful, if only for the whimsical sounds post-chorus.
04. Ghost Dance
Enchanting with those disconcerting guitar notes. Listen to the KEXP studio version.
Faster, with drum patterns that remind of The National.
06. Totem II
Sunlight seems to set in during this second wordless track.
Reminds of the XX to start off, and builds into something joyful. Shiny colours, shiny in the dark, it is when you give of yourself.
Makes you feel like the album was filled with sadness, yet you’re now sad it’s ending.
