The Lonely Forest is a band out of Washington state who have been picked up by Death Cab For Cutie’s Chris Walla for his Trans record label. Their sound is rock/alternative but they feel like just a straight forward garage band. A garage band with great melodies and textures. They are releasing a new self titled E.P. on September 14th and the first single “Live There” has just been released. It’s a great song. Reminds me of Red House Painter’s meets R.E.M. meets Interpol meets Snow Patrol. I’m excited about what’s to come from this band. Check out “Live There” below.
