|William Forrest, from Pittsburgh|
I like my indie rock with some muscle behind it. William Forrest is a four-piece rock band who just moved to Pittsburgh from Indiana, PA. “Numb/Her” is the band’s first single but there’s no trace of timidness. This slow-burner packs an EP’s worth of highs and lows into just under 5 minutes. It’s full of fuzzed out guitars and hefty, plaintive howls — one of the more mature debuts in recent memory. Do yourself a favor and give it a listen:
Catch them next month at Cattivo when they perform with Nevada Color, The Nox Boys and Emerson Jay October 9. Fingers crossed their new EP will be ready in time for the merch table.
