Forest Fire are friends, but often they are not in the same city. When they are together, they record at The Apartment. “Survival” is the result of a long process of the potential energy of apartness building to the point of kinetic connection, of togetherness. Some tracks thump and wail. Some softly crash in waves until the bubbles on shore have built up and up and can’t help but to burst into riffs of thick sonic bubbling sand. Others just seem like home. Familiar and intentional and warm.
