FOREST RELEASE FUN
NEW STOP MOTION VIDEO FOR ‘BOX’

STREAM WISDOM TUSK EP

Box is an assured indie-pop nugget” – The Line of Best Fit
Did you get the memo? Which one? One of the 1,323 notes that all magically come to life in the incredible, new stop-frame animation video for Forest’s new track, ‘Box’.

‘Box’ is one of the catchiest songs on Forest’s new ‘Wisdom Tusk’ EP, a nostalgic track that was handpicked by band buddy Otis Moorman, who took on the strenuous task of piecing together a phenomenal amount of drawings and photos to make this unique video idea come to life.

“It took roughly 1,323 unique sticky notes and an insane amount of hours to complete, as the average frame took 2-5 minutes to draw,” explains Moorman. “I wanted to give the video an up-front, DIY feel, relying on stuff I could do in front of the camera rather than in editing. As a result, the process was as simple as taking photo after photo of sticky notes on my bedroom wall. It’s all about limits being placed on you, and eventually using those limits to escape the box they put you in.”

Forest’s ethic so far has been about exercising their different abilities in order to work out their strengths, so they can eventually develop a genuine vision. This mentality is reflected in how this video was made – organic and willing to try something different.

Look out for Forest on the road from the new live shows announced today where they will be playing tracks from their previous recordings and latest ‘Wisdom Tusk’ EP release via Indelabel on green vinyl. Order it from http://indelabel.bigcartel.com/product/three-10-for-10-00
