Says Sophie Day, vocalist & guitarist of Alunah:

'A Forest' was originally released by The Cure in 1980 and has been covered by quite a few artists; it's now been given the Alunah treatment. It's the only cover we've recorded; a decision we made after playing it live for a couple of years, and always to a great reception. This video was also a perfect chance to show off Adrian Baxter's stunning artwork for 'Solennial'.

A Forest' is taken from Alunah's fourth album 'Solennial'. Album to be released Friday 17th March 2017 via Svart Records. Recorded and mixed by Chris Fielding at Skyhammer Studio, mastered by Greg Chandler at Priory Recording Studios. Cello arrangement written and performed by Charlotte Nicholls, video illustrations by Adrian Baxter. “A Forest” written by Smith, Robert James; Gallup, Simon Johnathon; Hartley, Matthieu Aiden; Tolhurst, Laurence Andrew. Originally performed by The Cure. © Universal Music Publishing Group.
