Forsythia: ‘Pretty Lungs’

Today’s Top Tune dedicates this week to sharing the work of some of the most gifted burgeoning artists we’ve found via KCRW’s Young Creators Project

Born and raised in Los Angeles, teenage trio Forsythia blend a heady mix of indie-pop hooks with dabs of shoegaze on their debut single “Pretty Lungs.” Each member contributes their A-game to a different aspect of music making: Eli shoots their videos, Nami designs merch, and Riley’s stage presence ups their game. Forsythia “aspire to create an environment where young people feel confident in sharing their art and expressing their creativity.” We can get behind that.
