The Indie Song of the Day comes from Toronto. Featuring Matt Fuentes and Holly Forrest, the band is called FXRRVST (forest) and they’ve crafted a terrific song with their single “Tidal Wave” off their new album May XXVI.
In 2017 FXRRVST earned an Independent Music Award nomination for Best Indie act and they’re building something special with the project. Forrest is a world traveler of sorts living in Indonesia, born in Australia and now living in Toronto. She met Fuentes when she moved to Toronto to study at Metalworks.
A big part of the groups is being as green and Earth-conscience as possible. From the band’s Facebook page, they say:
“Everything we use is recycled, from inks to paper to our T-shirts, which are made from bamboo and recycled cotton,” Fuentes says, adding that partial proceeds benefit local and international charities. “Artists can have such a big impact on their audience. And that’s part of what drives us.”
