The Forest & The Trees – Missions // Album Review

theforestandthetreesBest Fit – out now

Controversial view here, but the Swedes are alright at this indiepop music business, aren’t they? Among the country’s finer exports of late is this, the golden dazzler of a second album from The Forest & The Trees. It’s smart, it’s dense, it’s gleeful without edging into the cheesy, and mostly it’s just damn beautiful. It’ll leave you crushed or empowered, longing for a cinematic summer’s romance; while at its core, Missions reminds us of the power that pop music yields to delve into our deepest emotions, wrench at our tear ducts and, hell, even get us dancing. So much for the dreaded ‘sophomore slump’.
