Lost in the midst of my gig self promotion last week was this new single from This Silent Forest. It is too good to let pass by without mention, so I’m invoking the good old “better late than never” ruling to mention it this week instead.
Having recently completed the terrifying sounding task of writing and recording a song every day for 30 days – I can’t even knock out a blog post a day and this requires no creativity, unlike songwriting – This Silent Forest have a new single out now through Never Make Friends Records.
The Fight is a grand sounding number. A slow build and storytelling lyrics teamed with rich layers of instrumentation build to a huge climax, resulting in a song that is sweeping and epic, without falling into the trap of sounding contrived that can often follow such things. Straddling the pop and modern folk camps, The Fight is pretty excellent really. The single is backed with a couple of alternative versions.
