Boreal Forest is a dream rock group from Minneapolis, Minnesota. The band formed from four close friends with a mutual love for alternative music. The group began bouncing musical ideas off of one another in 2015 via recordings, while they were split between two cities. A year later, the band moved into a house together in Duluth, MN, where they lived and made music. Their debut album "Terraform" was finished in their basement studio 6 months later, and was released to the public on February 5th, 2017. The four are currently playing local shows and recording new material.
Boreal Forest's sound is soothing and eccentric, changing colors and textures as they experiment with different configurations of instruments, both organic and synthetic. The wide range of musical influence that emits from their music can be heard through introspective lyrics, atmospheric synths, ambient field recordings, and layered guitar riffs.
