Put Saturday 19 October in your diary as singer-songwriter TORI FORSYTH is taking to the stage in The Bunker and launching her blistering new single Be Here.
At just 24 and with numerous ARIA and APRA accolades under her belt, Forsyth is back a year after releasing her debut album with Be Here.
Based on her own experiences of dealing with a partner’s addiction, Be Here is real, raw and honest in the vein of the best confessional rock, with Forsyth snarling over scorched guitars as she lays down the law.
Jangly, whirring guitar lines spin through the mix like a hurricane, mimicking the all-consuming vortex of addiction, but Forsyth makes her position clear: give it up, or you’ll lose me.
“Words are different they mean the same, heard it all, what a shame,” she sneers, fresh out of pity.
Forsyth has never shied away from revealing herself in song, but she’s never sounded this powerful before either.
Be Here speaks to a lifetime of listening to strong, provocative frontwomen and female-fronted bands - Hole, Patti Smith, PJ Harvey, Joan Jett - and parlaying that inspiration into something authentic and visceral. Forsyth also names Nirvana, Soundgarden and Audioslave as influences when writing the track.
Like her idols, Forsyth is able to distil her emotions with startling maturity and clarity.
Be Here is the sound of a thrilling young talent spreading her wings.
