One of the UK’s most significant electronic artists and composers, Forest Swords delves into new aesthetic territory for upcoming second album ‘Compassion’, due for release on 5 May. A follow up to 2013’s ‘Engravings’, the new album is a creative response to the uncertainties and aggressive behaviours common to many in modern life. His ideas are manifested in compelling layers built from buzzing digital textures, field recordings, clattering beats and distorted jazz sax amid fizzing orchestral arrangements.
In his own words:”Like many, with all that’s been going on since I started making the record, I’ve struggled to see any kind of light at the end of the tunnel.,so I realised there’s some sort of power in trying to create our own instead”.
This is a standing show.
