STREAM: ‘CARAMEL ARMS EP’:
“Forest are a band who are on the cusp of being brilliant.” NME
“Forest have already developed their music into something with meaning and depth.“ – Noisey
“ These songs are fabulous, fuzzy kid brothers of Freak Scene.” Guardian
FOREST have announced they will play two final live shows of 2013 to celebrate a fantastic year with two EP releases and great support from taste makers across the country.
The 5-piece will play a Christmas show for their home fans at the Portland Arms in Cambridge on Saturday 21st December, following a London show at the Old Blue Last on Friday 13th.
Back in May this year, Forest kicked off their musical quest releasing the self-produced ‘Sweetcure’ EP with four tracks of beautiful driving indie that was launched by Pitchfork and the band heralded as Ones To Watch from many. This slice of limited vinyl on Tip Top Recordings was followed by the equally acclaimed ‘Caramel Arms’ EP released on Indelabel in October that presented four blissfully arranged, fuzzed-out tracks lauded by the likes of Steve Lamacq, NME, Guardian, Fake DIY, Clash, Q, Noisey and many more.
2014 will see Forest release their debut album and see the band back on the road. Until then, see their final shows and await new music coming soon.
13th December: Old Blue Last, London
21st December: The Portland Arms, Cambridge
