Track/Video: Multi-instrumentalist/producer Forest Law returns with the psych-infused global grooves of ‘Ooo,I’ ahead of a summer album.

To sum up multi-instrumentalist/producer Forest Law’s journey to this point as “Essex born, now London based” only hints at his musical story so far. Coming through Giles Peterson’s ‘Future Bubblers ‘artists’ development programme, earning a Brownswood EP release in 2020, being a key member of Esa Williams Afro-Synth Band then taking up an extended residency at LungA art school in the remote fringes of East Iceland, sounds like quite a trip. Throw into the mix the world-on-hold hiatus that was the pandemic and you get to this next level in Forest Law’s trajectory.

The single Ooo, I, streaming now on all the usual suspects. is the first signpost to Forest Law’s debut album set for release this summer through Bongo Joe/Total Refreshment Centre. Written during that winter sabbatical in Iceland at “a makeshift studio overlooking a fjord which got zero sunlight from November to February”, it’s a time that granted Forest Law “unavoidable inspiration” and brought on this radiant music.

With the studio support of Athur Sajas (Vanishing Twin associate) on production and added instruments, the final cut of ‘Ooo I’ may have moved beyond its raw state but you can still sense that original spark. A pumping electro samba, the smooth vocal flow, air punching, on the beat chants, flutes that warble and flutter as the clipped synth strings zip, here’s a song that rides the thermals in a swirl of momentum. Indie-dance pop with a psychedelic mindset or maybe Animal Collective/MGMT sophistication with a restless percussive soul, Forest Law delivers vibrant new sounds that ignores any rule book.
