Supajam reviews From Forests' debut EP.

In a move of sheer genius, From Forests call their first track on their debut EP "Intro". I see what they did there. It's a tip-toeing, number that gradually rumbles into the shivering atmospheric mid-section of 5-minute plus songs.

Here, the textures blend into a wistful and moving soundscapes. Atmosphere is allowed to build and by the time the duelling drums and guitars kick into overdrive on "Building Walls" you've probably been on a small adventure. A small adventure within your mind that is, not a quick trip to KFC.

Time for the emotional and moving climax. A delicate, misty opening makes you feel like you are getting ready to ask a girl for sex after walking with her on a beach for an hour. The tribal drumming in the close confirms that you were successful.

The EP is available for free on their soundcloud. Go and listen to it, then find your girl...
