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’ on the 24th of May 2019!
