‘Forth Wanderers’ will be available April 27th worldwide on Sub Pop
The songs on Forth Wanderers’ Sub Pop debut are introspective, with meditations on relationships, discovery, and finding oneself adrift. Despite the inherent heaviness of those themes, Forth Wanderers feels joyous, a rock record bursting with heart. The album’s opening track “Nevermine” is the perfect summation of feelings and themes, with singer Ava Trilling’s lyricism exuding a surge of confidence inspired by an ex-lover who is still captivated by her image. “I don’t think I know who you are anymore/ and I don’t think I knew who I was before” she jabs with relish”
Noisey premiered the track and offered this, “It’s a winding, restless, half-paced song in which Trilling jabs confidently at a former partner: “I am the one you think of when you’re with her.” It never quite settles down, flitting between its four sections, each of which is catchy enough to be a chorus on its own. [see Noisey premiere March 8th].”

Recorded over five days by friend and audio engineer Cameron Konner at his Philadelphia home studio, Forth Wanderers amplifies the heartfelt sentiments of the band’s earlier works into massive anthems. Ben Guterl and Duke Greene’s guitars have never sounded so sharp, Noah Schifrin and Zach Lorelli’s terse rhythm section is restless, and vocalist-lyricist Ava Trilling seems more self-assured than ever. “We have embraced our roles in the collaboration process,” says Guterl. “Everyone’s gotten better at their instruments and we trust each other more because we know how the machine works.” This spirit soars through Forth Wanderers, resulting in exuberant, profound songs driven by tightly bound melodies and a loving attention to detail (read more at Sub Pop).
