Coming from very different musical backgrounds, Australian trio Forrest Run (Hip-hop producer Judah, electro-folk instrumentalist Jayke, and indie pop vocalist Ayla) manage to make that work to their advantage in the eclectic and electric Summer.

The urban meets rock attitude to the vocals is like a shock to the system, soul and spikiness dancing like a duet in one voice. Coming off like a nursery rhyme for adults who have been hurt, the melody and lyrics give a sense of comfort to be found in preparing for heartbreak. There’s a skill to writing upbeat songs about reflective topics, but Forrest Run have it down pat here.
