Forth Wanderers are a collective originally hailing from New Jersey who create frenetic rock numbers with a dissatisfied undercurrent. Their writing style of sending bits and pieces back and forth to each other via email and building them up remotely has served them well, with two EPs and an album under their belt, and now a record deal with Sub Pop, who will release their self-titled second album on April 27th.

'Not For Me', the first taste of that album, shows a band still growing in stature and heft. With the main creative partnership of guitarist and songwriter Ben Guterl and vocalist Ava Trilling still in their early 20s, but now living in separate states, the song is an impressive array of ideas that have come from this cross-country pollination. While the rock spine is solid and rigorous, it's the impassioned vocal performance of Trilling, moaning and consoling her way through the song with a compulsive passion for the person she desperately desires, living so far away. It all come to breaking point when the song cuts out and she announces "I can't feel the ground beneath my feet." Despite these overhwhelming physical desires, Trilling is pushed onwards through 'Not For Me' by the unrelenting rock step of her band, pushing her to the point of being drained.
