Los Angeles multi-instrumentalist and composer Nailah Hunter is releasing a full-length album later this year and earlier this month she has shared a taste from it in the shape of new single ‘Forest Dark’. In Hunter’s own words, “Forest Dark is about lost love and quiet longing, calling forth the feeling of a full moon shining through the tallest trees in an ancient wood.”
The track was produced by Brogan Bentley and speaking about it, Hunter commented:
“It was a new and exhilarating process working closely with producer Brogan Bentley on this track. He sampled and resynthesized the harp parts I wrote for the piece to create a new sound world, and the addition of Max Kaplan’s tenor sax added another layer of richness and soul.”
Bentley also had this to say about their collaboration:
“Forest Dark: The last kiss of light from the golden hour as it descends below the treeline, exposing fleeting tones of deepest emerald green and crimson red woods. The ensuing cloak of nightfall worn by the many spirits of the forest as they sing and dance in rapture, playing strings of shadow and imagination, exciting mystery and reverence for lesser known paths as they reveal themselves with every new step taken through the dark.”
