Published Nov 03, 2015Denver-based musician Kael Smith is readying his latest LP as Mute Forest for release later this month, but before Deforestation takes root, Exclaim! has got the premiere of a brand new song called "Back of Cave."
It opens sparse and haunting, perhaps a nod to the name of the song, but as Smith delivers melancholic vocal melodies, the ambient textures and electronic beats evolve into a rich, complex backdrop for his lyrics.
A unique blend of minimalist electronic music and folk-inspired songwriting, "Back of Cave" serves as an elusive yet intriguing introduction to the new record. Deforestation is out on November 13 through Lost Tribe Sound, but you can hear "Back of Cave" right now in the player below.
