Born a fledgling project of Kat Burns, Forest City Lovers took flight in 2006 with the independent release The Sun and the Wind. The project grew up into a more collaborative outfit and in 2008 launched their critically acclaimed sophmore album Haunting Moon Sinking (Out of This Spark), a collection that bolsters FCL's signature tunefulness with talented musicianship, strong guitar lines, and swelling string arrangements.
Phodilus and Tyto, a 7'' vinyl released at the end of 2009 paved the way for the full-length follow-up. 2010's CARRIAGE picks up where Haunting Moon Sinking left off, carrying forward with arrangements and melodies that go from accutely vulnerable to downright sinister. A collection that drifts sonically across decades, CARRIAGE laces 1970s whimsy into contemporary pop gems to keep your feet tapping as you go singing down the sunny street.
While Burns and her other Lovers make their home habitat in Toronto, they tour frequently across Canada, the US, and Europe, drawing inspiration for their songs from these migratory ventures into foreign urban and rural environments.
