Painted Forest is a lo-fi solo-project based on Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Songs were written during their time at Temple University. Releasing their third collection of songs for this year, Former Home Death, there is a noticeable shift in tonality. A departure from their looser guitar-driven disposition, the record is steeped in a somber mist, apropos to its title.
Adrift with a quaint stream of vaporized drone, “Brokenness” motions with rippling synths and feelings of trepidation. Introspective lyrics glide over diminished percussion as a melancholic build-up dissipates into a haunting atmospheric coda.
