18.1.2016 Schokoladen/Berlin: BE FOREST. (post-punk/dreampop/shoegaze, it) + BIKINI JESUS (new wave surf/dreampop, bln)

Little League Shows presents:

Be Forest. (it) + Bikini Jesus (bln)

BE FOREST /// is a trio from Pesaro, Italy. Nicola Lampredi (guitar), Costanza Delle Rose (vocals and bass) and Erica Terenzi (drums), formed the band in 2010. They released their first album, „Cold“ (WWNBB collective), in 2011. They have been touring since, with breaks only to allow Nicola’s other band, Brothers in law, to tour as well. In 2012 Be Forest supported Japandroids‘ European tour and released a 7′ that included the cover of „I Quit Girls“, originally from the Canadian duo. In 2014 Be Forest released their second album, „Earthbeat“ (WWNBB), and among their touring in support of the album they appeared at festival such as CMJ & SXSW. If with Cold, their sound was characterized as “dark”, with Earthbeat the sun seems to have risen, a soft touch between the classic 4AD and the more recent XX, a new and involved liveliness is heard in Be Forest‘s sound.

BIKINI JESUS /// As soon as they meet, the dreadful Berlin weather turns into bright sunshine. Little is known about how exactly this works, but it seems to require a certain ritual involving reverb-drenched guitars, hypnotic bass lines, twisted drum beats and bittersweet vocals. Despite a lack of scientific evidence, Bikini Jesus continue to celebrate their climate-change voodoo in front of selected audiences.
