About Broken Forest

'The earth has music for those who listen'
G. Santayana

‘Her​ ​debut​ ​single​ ​is​ ​a​ ​real​ ​head-turner,​ ​A​ ​trip-hoppy​ ​slice​ ​of​ ​pop-tronica,​ ​if​ ​you​ ​will, it​ ​sounds​ ​like​ ​Grimes​ ​getting​ ​down​ ​and​ ​carefree​ ​with​ ​nature​ ​and​ ​bodes​ ​very​ ​well​ ​for her​ ​future​ ​ascendancy.’​ ​The​ ​Crack​ ​Magazine

A​ ​truly​ ​organic​ ​breath​ ​of​ ​fresh​ ​air​ ​-​ ​Broken​ ​Forest​ ​is​ ​the​ ​inventive​ ​work​ ​of​ ​writer, singer​ ​and​ ​producer​ ​Luise​ ​London.​ Since she was a young child, Luise has had a great passion for nature and its connection to our lives and minds. These​ ​and​ ​other​ ​heartfelt​ ​messages​ ​are​ ​delicately​ ​translated​ ​into​ ​Broken​ ​Forest’s music,​ ​with​ ​sweet​ ​vocals​ ​hanging​ ​over​ ​a​ ​mesmerising​ ​blend​ ​of​ ​Atmospheric​ ​Pop and​ ​organic​ ​Electronica.

Nature​ ​sounds​ ​are​ ​purposefully​ ​embedded​ ​into​ ​ambient​ ​synths​ ​and​ ​guitar​ ​effects. The​ ​sometimes​ ​harsh​ ​and​ ​coldness​ ​of​ ​modern​ ​urban​ ​life​ ​meets​ ​the​ ​sensibility​ ​and beauty​ ​of​ ​nature.​ ​The​ ​music​ ​is​ ​inspired​ ​by​ ​a​ ​variety​ ​of​ ​different​ ​genres​ ​from traditional​ ​Folk,​ ​to​ ​Pop​ ​and​ ​Trip-​ ​Hop,​ ​and​ ​artists​ ​such​ ​as​ ​Bon​ ​Iver,​ ​City and Colour​ ​or Keimzeit.​ ​The​ ​lyrics​ ​are​ ​filled​ ​with​ ​strong​ ​images​ ​representing​ ​the​ ​story,​ ​often generated​ ​through​ ​traditional​ ​tales​ ​Luise​ ​used​ ​to​ ​read​ ​as​ ​a​ ​child,​ ​combined​ ​with​ ​the struggles​ ​of​ ​today’s​ ​society​ ​through​ ​her​ ​sometimes​ ​dark,​ ​but​ ​romantic​ ​view​ ​on​ ​life.

Broken​ ​Forest’s​ ​debut​ ​EP​ ​‘Lost​ ​in​ ​Fairytales’,released​ ​in​ ​January​ ​2017,​ ​sees​ ​each​ ​of the​ ​record’s​ ​songs​ ​inspired​ ​by​ ​a​ ​different​ ​traditional​ ​Fairy​ ​Tale,​ ​and​ ​then​ ​related back​ ​to​ ​the​ ​struggles​ ​of​ ​modern​ ​life.​ ​The​ ​first​ ​single​ ​is​ ​‘Winter’.​ ​A​ ​classic​ ​break​ ​up and​ ​moving​ ​on​ ​song,​ ​which​ ​draws​ ​its​ ​imagery​ ​from​ ​Anderson’s​ ​fairy​ ​tale​ ​The​ ​little Match​ ​Girl,​ ​who​ ​rather​ ​stayed​ ​out​ ​on​ ​the​ ​street​ ​in​ ​winter​ ​time​ ​than​ ​going​ ​home​ ​with nothing.

Nature’s​ ​inspiration​ ​for​ ​Luise’s​ ​work​ ​continues​ ​into​ ​the​ ​live​ ​shows.​ ​Through projections​ ​accompanying​ ​the​ ​music,​ ​Broken​ ​Forest​ ​invite​ ​you​ ​into​ ​their​ ​world…

2018 saw an exciting year for Broken Forest, with shows across the UK and Festival appearances such as Boomtown Fair and Magical Festival. The new year is a continuation of this journey with a new release of the Single ‘Ghosts in the Dark’ in Spring 2019!
