These and other heartfelt messages are delicately translated into Broken Forest’s music, with sweet vocals hanging over a mesmerising blend of Atmospheric Folk and Organic Electronica.
In 2010 Luise took her music from Berlin to London to begin crafting her songs on a professional level at the ICMP, where a few years later the story of her project Broken Forest began.
Nature sounds are purposefully embedded into ambient synths, violin and guitar effects. The sometimes harsh and coldness of modern, urban life meets the sensibility and beauty of nature. The music is inspired by a variety of different genres from traditional UK and Irish Folk, to Pop and Trip- Hop, and artists such as Bon Iver, City and Colour, or Keimzeit. The lyrics are filled with strong imagary representing the story, often generated through traditional tales Luise used to read as a child, combined with the struggles of today’s society through her sometimes dark, but romantic view on life.
2018 saw an exciting year for Broken Forest, with shows across the UK and Festival appearances such as Boomtown Fair and Magical Festival. The new year is a continuation of this journey with a new release coming soon!
