Forever – Forever

Out of the ashes of Me And My Arrow come the band Forever, who reside in Portland and seem to have very little web presence. Their debut EP kicks off with Oh Distant Heart, a song that has a very rough around the edges, rattling Sons & Daughters feel to it. Something’s Missing also hurtles along at a hundred miles an hour, sounding like a speeded up Helen Love. By Tumbleweed things are getting a little samey, but it picks up on You Don’t Care, where a rumbling Joy Division tune propels some yelled riot grrl influenced vocals. And that’s it, in a blur, six tracks and fifteen minutes they are gone.

Forever is out now on Happy Happy Birthday To Me Records
