“Winnebago Dreams” is the first single off Forest Tourist’s upcoming EP Pop Reject set to drop in June. The new EP will be accompanied by a Southeastern tour with Atlanta band Today The Moon, Tomorrow The Sun.
For the past couple of weeks (years) I’ve been on music overload. Mediocre music clogs the newsfeeds, twitterfeeds, and our email accounts. Something new is here and gone in the blink of an eye. Something that is actually good is missed, covered in turn by a pile of rubbish that is someone playing an out of tune guitar in their bedroom into their mac and posting it on Bandcamp. The filters have worn thin you guys. The filters are covered in filth. And when our ears have grown tired, and the hum has grown loud, it keeps taking something more than special to crack the door and let the light in. Forest Tourist is the light. “Winnebago Dreams” with its’ catchy keyboard, unique vocals and well crafted structure stands above the excruciating minutia of music in the pre-20-teens.
