Loud Forest
Loud Forest
If Loud Forest’s music can be called pop, a four-letter word for artists after purity, it is only in its likeability, its warmth, its tidy edges. Here is then pop imbued with love and artisanship. The love pours in from founders and mainstays, Bernard and Rachel Chadwick, a husband-and- wife duo. Theirs is an enviable creative relationship built around making more of themselves and the world through their collaboration. The art arrives from the band starting as an excuse to play gallery openings while Bernard was earning his MFA at ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, Calif. It was a way for rock to run into art and art to run into rock, or, the exact purpose of their music. Doused in indie credibility from years of self-releases, homemade microphones and hosting shows in their experimental art space in Pasadena, it is easy to call up like souls in their influences Arcade Fire, The Pixies, Sonic Youth and Spoon. The band’s recent incorporation of pop sensibilities comes from a partnership with co-writer and drummer, Steve Wilmot (OneRepublic), with support from their label, New York-based AntiFragile Music. In their writing, Bernard comes in direct and minimal, Rachel abstract and experimental. The fusion of their individual sounds is then built out by a marauding group of likeminded family and friends entering their space with voice and instrument to create the band’s often ruckus, danceable soundscapes. The couple met in the cloud forests of Costa Rica as teens. Both were by chance visiting from their native California. Bernard played Rachel a song, Rachel tuned Bernard's guitar and Bernard tried the song again. Then came marriage, two daughters and always more music. Loud Forest endures past pop’s usual events of finding the dream girl or losing that lover. As a couple who caught their love young, Bernard and Rachel sing what they know: leaning into the life-giving challenges of a union, the sometimes resulting cravings of independence and the thousands of points in a relationship where courage and fidelity are called upon again sweetly by two powerful voices.
