Forestears formed back in 2009 originally as an acoustic double act through a shared love of stripped back rustic sounds such as Nick Drake, Neil Young and in contrast to this; Radiohead and Elbow.
In the fall of the same year a fully fledged band had emerged from an initial 2 hour rehearsal, quickly followed by their first gig within a matter of hours later.
This transition brought the band out of their comfort zone of a subtle, gentle but limited sound into something which transformed itself into a vast array of energies, diverse influences and ideas.
This transition is what Forestears are known for today, as well as a killer horn section supplying the "stuck in my head" melodies, catchy rhythms and soaring vocals, delivering what Live & Loud said is "the most idiosyncratic fusion of latina jazz, lo-fi acoustic garage indie and a grab-bag of other musical genres".
