Forth Wanderers’ frontwoman Ava Trilling is able to speak intimately on the Montclair, NJ outfit’s latest single “Selfish”, the opening salvo to a 2014 full-length titled Tough Love. Trilling wants to be known as the girl who’s stone cold, one who wears her heart on her sleeve, and has nothing to prove nor seeks the validation of anyone. This track is a proclamation of self-worth and assurance, and its revelatory nature has a way of resonating with the listener, and uniting an audience around such internal fortitude.
Channelling the constructs of Built To Spill, the tenacity of Slothrust, and a delivery akin to that of Greta Kline (Frankie Cosmos), Forth Wanderers’ latest offering of meandering plod-rock is one the rekindles the spirit of those programmed to find self-worth in the opinions of those around you…and it comes complete with an intriguing tapestry of complimentary guitar harmonics.
Stream “Selfish” below and stay tuned for more on Forth Wanderers, and be sure to catch this burgeoning collective in the live arena when the band hits Shea Stadium in Brooklyn on Thursday (January 8) with Maxo, Bad Cello, and more. Find more info on the event and RSVP here.
