masqueradepw The first time I listened to this song, I was enthralled - it has cemented to me yet again why Sam Forrest is my favourite artist. Favorite track: Walking On Water.

nickgod Oui, cette musique et cette voix évoquent Elliott Smith, et alors ? Ce dernier n'a pu explorer qu'une parcelle de ce vaste champs, à d'autres, comme Sam Forrest, de poursuivre, de creuser et d'explorer ce même sillon, comme lui, avec talent. C'est chose faite. Merci à lui.

Aeroplane Days is the latest album by the English singer-songwriter Sam Forrest. The album was produced by Sam and Micah Calabrese over two years between 2019 and 2021. All ten tracks began as acoustic demos recorded by Sam in his home in North Yorkshire, but the album gradually evolved as Sam sent music to his collaborator Micah in Los Angeles.

Some songs like ‘Could’ve Been A Dancer’ and ‘Dog On A Leash’ retain their sparse acoustic feel with occasional psychedelic touches like delayed electric guitar and Hammond organ drones. Other tracks like album opener ‘A Place To Hide’ and ‘The Best Is Yet To Come’ take the chamber-pop approach to sit somewhere between mid-period Beach Boys and late-era Elliott Smith. Final track, ‘Walking On Water’ even abandons the guitar completely to feature little but pounding drums and arpeggiated synthesisers.

It’s the ninth solo album that Sam has released and it is his most fully realised record yet. Previous albums have explored everything from acoustic minimalism to feedback-laden dreampop. All of which is a far cry from the heavy rock of Sam’s band, Nine Black Alps, and Micah’s previous outfit, Giant Drag.
