Forrest ‘Close To Me’

My jaw dropped when this track kicked in from an alluring dark melodic intro, it’s just so intense. Heavy riffs, a swath of reverb swamping everything, distantly heroic harmonies and a teenage angst recalling the best of grunge and punk. If the soundscape isn’t big enough there’s sentimental hooks in the lyrics, structure and melodies, ‘please don’t give up, stay close to me’ being one that really gets under the skin. Very accomplished stuff from a young south Wales band.
