Congregate
by Forest Swords

— Released 27th September 2017

Forest Swords, aka Merseyside producer Matthew Barnes, returns with a two track single in aid of hurricane and earthquake relief work in Puerto Rico and Mexico by the Red Cross.

'Congregate' b/w 'Free', comes four months after the release of his critically acclaimed album 'Compassion'. The beatless tracks, recorded during the 'Compassion' album sessions in early 2017, take the sonic palette of the full-length and strip it back to a more meditative, textural place.

Main track 'Congregate' is based around brooding, mutated choral chants while 'Free', originally a 'Compassion' Japanese bonus track, takes distorted saxophone and weaving melodies into unsettling dreamlike territories. A self-directed visual for 'Congregate’ featuring the work of origami artist Fynn Jackson is available to view on YouTube.

The tracks are available to stream and download now, with proceeds going towards ongoing and future aid work following the devastating hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and this month's earthquake in Mexico.
