NJ Artists on the rise: Forth Wanderers

NJ Artists on the rise: Forth Wanderers

It sounds like New Jersey is going through a process of Brooklynization - at least as far as music is concerend. So many good indie bands coming out of it these days! After Stolen Jars, who landed on the cover of our most recent issue of The Deli, Forth Wanderers (incidentally also out of Montclaire) are now stealing our hearts with their intricately melancholic indie pop. The band has a trick up their sleeve in lead singer's Ava Trilling's adorably earnest delivery. Her touching lyrics, mostly revolving around the challenges of growing up, may bring you to tears; in streaming track "Selfish" (the opening track from their debut 2014 record "Tough Love") she sings:

"I wanna be known/as the girl who's stone cold 
wears her heart on her sleeve/for everyone to need 
oh she'll make you proud ..." 

"...I get scared instead, when you say/you've been in my head", let that stay 
i wish i could hurry home/i better hurry home."

Forth Wanderers will play a home show at Montclaire's Old Mogul Theatre on 01.03.
