Jangle Pop, Surf Gaze, Garage Pop, Twee, Indie 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/OG members Raye Hart and James Thain, and percussionist Justin Bellino. Forager has been earning a following and a reputation for surprises-- often breaking out kazoos, beach balls and piñatas during shows like it's some kind of party. In it's short existence, the band has already landed gigs opening for Best Coast, Screaming Females, Ought, Cloud Nothings, Hinds, and Sweet Spirit while playing out 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.
RIYL: The Breeders, The Vaselines, Best Coast, Vivian Girls
