About Broken Forest
'The earth has music for those who listen'
‘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!
