There are few bands that can make you want to cry in a pit of despair, while simultaneously jumping with joy. Singaporean emo-math trio Forests is one such band, and perhaps they put it best themselves when they describe their music as “sad songs for happy people”. Combining the technicality of math-rock and a cocktail of candid confessions and upbeat progressions, a Forests live show is truly a sight to behold, often with an audience as rambunctious as the energy unfolding on stage – which is why we simply had to get ’em in the studio for JUICE Sessions.
Playing songs from their stellar debut LP, Sun Eat Moon Grave Party, the band also treats us to a performance of the previously unrecorded “You Must Be Fun At Parties”. Watch the full session below to hear it in all its glory.
