Treefort Preview: Be Forest 

El Korah Shrine, Saturday, March 23

Treefort Music Fest brings in international artists of all stripes, and for proof one need look no farther than Be Forest, the three-piece Italian shoegaze outfit that will play El Korah Shrine on Saturday, March 23. Formed in 2010, Be Forest's music first cast ripples in Europe but swam across the pond in 2014 with Earthbeat (We Were Never Being Boring, 2014), its sophomore album. Some of Be Forest's songs, like the moody "Atto 1," are purely instrumental, while others, like "Empty Space," feature slithering, ethereal vocals layered over drumbeats and ominous electronic murmurs. Listen to the band's third and latest full-length album, Knocturne (We Were Never Being Boring, 2019) in one sitting, and the nine tracks bleed together into a seamless whole. This is music for standing dramatically in the rain, or running down night-slick city streets—a perfect fit for the experiential grab bag that is Treefort.
