Forest Fire, the NYC-based band led by songwriter Mark Thresher, has seen some changes over the years. Though it began as an alternative folk-rock band, these days the group has found more inspiration from the art-rock likes of Joy Division, Laurie Anderson, Suicide, and Kraftwerk, all of which seems to come out in their use of repetition, straightforward melodies, and synths. They stopped by the studio to talk about their recording process and some of the ideas behind their new album.
Featured song: “Alone With The Wires”
