SXSW Song Of The Day: Be Forest – Bengala

unnamed (4)

A forest can be a beautiful place, but venture into the forest late at night and it can also get pretty dark and a bit unsettling. Fittingly, Italian shoegazers Be Forest seem to have found the right mix of beauty and darkness on their upcoming album Knocturne (out February 8 via We Were Never Being Boring).

Lead single “Bengala” is a perfect example of this, mixing a dark, moody tone with a bit of lightness. The band themselves have described the track as “The spotlight that lights up the stage after the curtains open; a celestial body which at the moment of its impact allows us to glimpse our surroundings — it’s the brightest point, the north of the compass.”

Come this March, Be Forest’s compass will be pointing South By Southwest as the band heads to Austin to play a show (or several) during the week. Check out “Bengala” below:
