This Silent Forest, a singer songwriter led six piece with one foot in modern Scottish folk and the other in joyous pop. Combining an ability for sculptured melody and street corner tales with affections conjured from Bruce Springsteen’s broken American realism to REM’s observations on the human condition with quarter given to forbearers Idlewild, Aerogramme & Frightened Rabbit. These are the songs born and bred of Scottish murk, dark humour and the triviality of life’s relationships.

“Wonderful folk induced epic”, “if you like Frightened Rabbit you need to hear this band” – Jim Gellatly (BBC Scotland/Clyde 1)

“Explosions in the Sky with a nice voice” – Dan O’Connell (XFM)

“Phenomenal... Definitely give Chris Martin a run for his money.” – Ally McCrae (BBC Radio 1 Introducing In Scotland)

“Modern power ballad...Epic...Movie Soundtrack...” – Glasgow PodCart

“They’ll make you cry, they’ll make you rejoice, they’ll make you appreciate music on a deeper level... They’ve just built a penthouse on that sonic-edifice created by Frightened Rabbit, The Twilight Sad and Broken Records...” – Muslim Alim (BBC Radio 1 Producer)
