Bamboo Forest / Press

“Bamboo Forest — A lot of what defines the sound of Bamboo Forest is contained within frontman Jackson May’s voice. Cited influences run a gamut of classic rock, alternative and punk figureheads, and Bamboo Forest’s music follows fittingly. The Myrtle Beach foursome’s as eager with distorted power chords as it is with gentle twang and shuffling melody. May’s raw voice, though, will keep the band leaning nearer to its grunge inspirations. Marrying a Cobain roar to a Cuomo croon, he winds up somewhere in the vicinity of Titus Andronicus’ Patrick Stickles, minus the propensity for dense, prosaic lyrics. B. Reed ”

“#7 Bamboo Forest "Heavy" Why we love it: When it comes to being all about the music, Bamboo Forest is an awesome example of a trio of mild-mannered young guys that get up on stage and just transform into this fully-formed rock band with an awesome mix of punk rock angst, rock-driven riffs and hints of a slightly unhinged mental state in their lyrics . This track is kind of the epitome of that style to me and continues to remind me of a Nirvana track in a way, which is always a plus.”

"The track “Heavy” is one of a few changes of pace for the band on the aptly-titled “Indecisive.” The sound is a Grungy Blues-influenced rock highlighted by May — who pays definite homage to Kurt Cobain perfectly-calculated vocal angst — and musical elements that show hints of White Stripes, Black Keys and even a little Hendrix." -ListenUpMB
