Forest Ray is what happens when you take indie rock and infuse just a little bit of acid punk! The Washington based outfit use fuzzed-out guitars and clever songwriting to create a signature sound all their own– and it’s straight-up oozing cool.
The group has really succeeded in taking what Lou Reed became so well known for, mixing in some shoegaze and coming out the other side with an indie sound that is unique to them. While not a terribly long listen, it’s certainly an intricate one led by the group’s principal songwriter and bandleader Peter Sumic. It makes for a huge musical journey. Listen.
