Jangle Pop, Surf Gaze, Twee, Indie Pop, Garage Pop, or whatever you want to call it. An ear worm burrowing it's way into your skull. Catchy melodies. Lots of hooks. Let's just leave it at "this is going to be stuck in your head for awhile."
Sired by the 2016 Cleveland Lottery League, Forager's rotating cast of characters are anchored by songwriting duo Raye Hart and James Thain. Forager has been earning a following, as well as a reputation for being "the fun band"-- surprising crowds with everything from kazoos and piñatas, to themed photo booths. Over the past year Forager has been playing gigs with bands like Best Coast, Ought, Cloud Nothings, Hinds, and Sweet Spirit in support of their first release "Deadbeat Suite." Surf inspired tracks like "Solitaire" and "Fallout" have begun generating buzz on college radio and with indie bloggers both stateside and internationally. The band is looking forward to hitting the road and releasing additional material later this year.
