Future Of Forestry – ‘Union’ album review


click to buy

It would be easy to characterize Future Of Forestry as ambient and orchestral (both of which are, of course, true), but to stop there would be selling Eric Owyoung’s contribution to the musical world very short. On Union (buy), Future Of Forestry’s newest completely instrumental offering, the sound is as lush as the emotional landscape it produces. Filled predominately with strings and piano, Union takes the listener on a poignant and passionate journey. Songs like “Has No Beginning” create a majestic, cinematic feel, while “Abundance” and “Light From Earth” are quieter and more plaintive. But whether simple or resplendent, Union manages to conjure images of our Creator without needing to resort to words.
