gilsonmachado Be Forest is just one of the best artists I've discovered during the last years!
I fell in love with their music after I saw their live sessions for KEXP and Audiotree.
Their music is so dense, so well done and I've been listening to Knocturne for several days, almost non-stop.
My goal now is trying to see them playing live someday, somewhere! :) Favorite track: Empty Space.

about

Over four years since the release of Earthbeat, Be Forest returns with news of their most ambitious and atmospheric album to date—Knocturne. Their third album and first offering since the sensational 2016 single "Glow"—the trio enlisted Steve Scanu to assist with production and mixing duties with mastering courtesy of Josh Bonati to help create the group's most moody, beguiling and mesmerizing full-length to date. Presenting the debut of the album’s first single “Bengala”, the Pesaro three piece spins hazy dream keys and chords into a whirlpool of sensations that orbit like constellations of discovery and enlightenment.
The b/w video for Knocturne's opener "Atto I" allows the audience to behold the grand curtain rising spectacle that bears witness to a specter-like vapor that materializes like a hybrid of smoke, steam and fog that invites the viewer/listener into the void. Be Forest shared the following about audio and visual for the album’s commencement: “We sit as the audience watching on stage what we really are and the abyss in which we need to learn how to swim in" Entertaining the allure and intrigues of evening inceptions; Be Forest’s new full-length album navigates the cryptic courses between worlds like the airy and inverted "Empty Space", or the cinematic duality of doppelgangers on "Gemini", to film-style scores inspired by Kafka-esque stories as heard on"K". Sinewy subterranean soundtracks for film thrillers not yet made can be heard on"Sigrido", that then returns the listening audience to the second and suspenseful movement of "Atto II". Knocturne is a song cycle that commiserates with our own collective international uncertainty and unease of these current times, bringing breaks in the luster of night—like the fractured "Fragment"—with the shining beacons of aural light at the end of the
tunnel like "Bengala", to the dream portrait closer "You, Nothing".
Those seeking the tangible terrain and audio designed environments of Be Forest's previous releases are in for a mind, spirit and emotional awakening as the band described in their own words; "It took us a long time to write, record, and finish this album, but it took us even longer to
understand its very soul. Unlike our other albums, here there’s no color or geographic place that we can reference: we aren’t in the woods in Norway [as found on the debut record Cold] or in a reservation around a bonfire [like on the second album Earthbeat]."

about

We Were Never Being Boring Collective Italy

We want music to never turn into something boring for us. It would mean that we have become boring. Because music does not die with mp3′s or copyright: boredom is what brings it down, when it becomes a habit. All we need is a small do-it-yourself collective, as tiny as a simple smile. ... more

Track Name: Empty Space
Secrets across his face
A lazy man without space
He walks alone in a burning way
Hidden in an unlikely place
Restless dreams tip toe in his arms
Bring him down
Track Name: Gemini
Sun and moon
Split in two
Left and right
Day joins night
Sleep has dreams to forgive
Side by side
Which is me? Which is you?
Which is me? Which is you?
Track Name: K
Wild bones and sacred secrets
They'll come down from heaven
Silent time, start to swim
Plant your seeds that carry to me
Carnival of all lies on your lips
She stays silent, time to fill the dark
Silent, kind.
All is blue like a big ocean
But i'm through dark waters
Silent time, start to swim
She stays silent, time to fill the dark
Silent, kind.
Track Name: Sigfrido
I walk on evil dirty sand and falling icons
Trying to keep an even pace
Give me a reason to stay
Here I am like a bolt trying to crash into the ground
I will do it, you can count on it
I will do it, you can count on me
All the lies on my back in a web of comets end
(If you can't swim into the sound)
In space I’m going to rest
(if you can't reach the enlightening bound)
In that place I’m going to rest.
Track Name: Bengala
I’m waiting for thunders to see the dust of my old life
I'm taking a breath to see where the shadows slip behind blue light
All of us are lost in this hell
But I sit in the hum of a new sun
What dreams shall come to pass?
I’m waiting myself hidden somewhere in my heart
I’m waiting mercy and decline, that's all we will find.
Track Name: Fragment
Neither god nor illusion delete our fears
but fantasies of your smile hold me tight
Rejuvenate me
And comb away the years from my hair
Save me
From the void grown on my shoulders
Floating forever
in search of a star, we gnaw at the heart
we stay forward the moon rising small.
Track Name: You, Nothing
We look into the sky more and more high
Searching new worlds
We feed our souls
And I know I’m a strange one
But I’m not just a ghost like you
There are wild beings everywhere
And all that I did was daydream
And I’ll dissolve finally
Drifting forever
Looking for a new world
We lost ourselves
Different from all others
We've not fear of nothingness.
