This Silent Forest are an excellent Scottish six-piece. They specialise in an epic-sounding indie-cum-folk melancholia -imagine Aereogramme meets Idlewild meets Broken Records.
They are (drum roll, please): Graeme Macdonald (vocals, guitar), Lesley Macdonald (violin, keyboards, vocals), Jamie Daisuke (vocals, guitar), Kevin Smith (bass, magic (er, so it says)), Iain Stewart (Drums, Faces, er, again…)), and Iona Bain (‘Cello, vocals).
They will be out on tour very soon across Scotland:
1st March – Su Casa, Ayr (Acoustic)
7th March – PJ Molloys, Dunfermline
9th March – Hootananny, Inverness
23rd March – Tunnels, Aberdeen (supporting Bwani Junction)*
24th March – The Captains Rest, Glasgow (support from We’re Only Afraid of NYC & Mike Nisbet)
*two excellent acts like this on the same bill. If you miss this gig and you live in Aberdeen, you’re an idiot.
And this is why you should go and check them out:
This is their song ‘Fight.’
This is their previous single ‘Falter Discover’
Their forthcoming single is called ‘Milk’…which you will just have to wait for! (Trust me, it’s worth it…)
