Forest Ray is what happens when you take indie rock and infuse just a little bit of acid punk! The Washington based outfit is utilizing fuzzed-out guitars and superior 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 is certainly an intricate one with the group’s 6-song record really making for a huge musical journey.
The layering and arrangement is thick with this one as Forest Ray provides a soundtrack for just the worst kind of sunny days.
