Roosevelt – Colours / Moving On

Roosevelt

After watching Roosevelt play Iceland Airwaves some time ago, we’ve been slightly obsessed with the Greco-Roman / City Slang artist (ok, we were obsessed before, but the live show ramped the levels up quite a bit).

His latest retro-styled video (synonymous with Roosevelt’s visuals) has been directed by Elliott Arndt and combines two tracks from Roosevelt’s latest self-titled album. Despite the bursts of colour and dancing, the first section has an underlying sadness running throughout, as Roosevelt contemplates a partner leaving, taking all their colours with them on the way. ‘Moving On’ is the next chapter in the story, but it finishes early, leaving us to question has he really moved on?

Be Forest – Colours

Be Forest

Be Forest

Be Forest are a band from Pescaro, Italy. Originally starting as a trio, Be Forest consists of guitarist Nicola Lampredi, Erica Terenzi on drums and vocals, and Costanza Delle Rose on bass and vocals.

The band released their debut album ‘Cold’ in 2011 and instantly created an energetic and new musical stir, namely the ‘Pescaro-scene’.

As the band describe; “Pesaro is not a city for young people, there are less and less venues to play at, especially during the winter. Perhaps this lack is exactly what motivates kids to embrace music so passionately”.

Fast forward 2 years, add fourth member Lorenzo Badioli on electronic duties and listen to the track ‘Colours’. The track takes you through a hypnotic ethereal journey with a deep and steady beat, and tremolo guitar riffs.

‘Colours’ has been taken from Be Forest’s more uplifting sophomore album, ‘Earthbeat’, which will be released on 4 February 2014 on WE WERE NEVER BEiNG BORING. The album can be pre-ordered here.

Sounds like: Mike Snow, 4AD, HAERTS, The xx
