Bio

Consisting of hip-hop producer Judah, multi-instrumentalist Jayke and indie-pop vocalist Ayla, ‘Forrest Run’ are “an intriguing fusion of styles, stemming from the individuals' musical backgrounds” – Little Indie Blog
Forrest Run’s last release ‘Summer’ landed on Apple Music’s ‘Best of the Week’ playlist, rotation on Mood Media in stores around Australia, and reviews including:
“I am really enjoying the electronic production, which has a captivating chilled out and summery atmosphere… rich textures, sun-soaked guitar riffs and atmospheric touches.” - Caesar Live N Loud:
Their first two releases ‘All We Needed’ and ‘Let Me Fall’ both landed rotation on unearthed radio, with reviews from triple j presenters including:
“…smart production twists, Ayla’s flawless vocal and the sense of everyday drama is great.” - Declan Byrne. These three singles then featured on Forrest Run’s debut self-titled EP – produced Tim Carr (Matt Corby, Le Pie, Urthboy) and released October 2019.
As well as their EP release, last year, Forrest Run landed a support for triple-j-favourites ‘Boo Seeka’, toured their EP, and headlined a stage at the Caloundra Music Festival. In 2020, the trio will be recording their sophomore EP – the first taste of which is their brand new single ‘Leave the Lights’. This shiny pop-number will be out across all platforms on the 12th of February, ensuring an exciting year ahead for Forrest Run!

Really liking how this group is growing. There's a twinkle of Naked & Famous style indie pop in this track.

Slick, smart indie pop. And those high notes in the chorus are *MWAH*.
