Trevor Forrest – “Countless Ways”


Trevor Forrest is a Brooklyn-based singer, songwriter, and producer whose charismatic new track “Countless Ways” is aptly described as “if Alt-J and Local Natives were one person instead of two bands, this song would probably happen.” Possessing the atmospheric power of Alt-J and quick-maneuvering hookiness of Local Natives, “Countless Ways” is filled with a number of striking moments, especially around 01:10 when the track pursues a hypnotic, spacey soundscape with a funk-tinged, higher-pitched vocal delivery. The emergence of a classic guitar solo around 02:11 adds nicely to the mix, before traversing back to the trickling infectiousness of the first verse. It’s a structurally interesting, colorfully melodic track that shows Forrest as an artist worth paying ample attention to.
