Stereogum premiere Forest Fire video - ‘Screens’ out now in the US

Head over to Stereogum to watch a video for "Waiting In The Night" a song off Forest Fire's latest record, 'Screens', which is out today. 

From its dark, sparse, sonic landscapes, obsession with analog instrumentation, and movement-focused, heavily metaphorical lyrics, 'Screens' finds Forest Fire hewing to a mood set out by some late 70's trailblazers: Kraftwerk, Yoko Ono, Joy Division, Laurie Anderson included. But for all the record’s gratitude to the past, its aesthetic is just as much forward-looking, able to embrace the sunrise hooks of anthemic album opener 'Waiting in the Night'. Elsewhere, Suicide-spooky synth-drones sit in neat foil to jangly stride and Leonard Cohen-frosted vocal deliveries, comprising ingredients of a complex and duly expressive full-length.

The album is available in the US on LP only and is limited to a first pressing of 500 copies. Be sure to pick one up at your favorite local record store, online retailer, or through the FatCat store.
