New Music: Forest - "Box"

Forest are a band based in Cambridge in the UK. The band are barely out of their teens and are pushing a style not unlike that of The Arctic Monkeys or the Strokes.

There is an adage relating to pop music that goes "Nice Video...shame about the song". That's not really the problem here. The song is interesting enough - it grows more appealing with each subsequent listen. But personally I probably wouldn't have listened a second (and third) time if it wasn't for the amazing stop-motion video. It was made with over 1300 unique Post-it Notes, hand drawn. It is a truly inspiring piece of art.

Check out "Box" by Forest. Here's hoping they come up with some more innovating clips.
