Allegra Krieger - "Forgot"

Photo by Liz Maney
The latest from Allegra Krieger starts out as a deceptively simple song. It begins as a sparse modern indie rock/folk song. Just Kreiger's voice and some lightly strummed electric guitar. That by itself would have been enough to be completely captivating for five minutes, but more instruments slowly wander in and out. And then a gloriously change up happens and it morphs into this more aggressive rock song with clanging guitars and drums that don't quite match up to the song. And then it slowly wanders back to the original. If it's going to remind us of anything, it's a combination of Haley Heyndrickz and Lady Lamb, which is huge praise coming from me.

According to Allegra Krieger, "'Forgot' is the realization of losing one's self in a relationship, and becoming completely beholden to the will of another."

You can listen to "Forgot" below. The Joys of Forgetting, the upcoming album from Allegra Krieger, is due out August 7 on Northern Spy. For more on Allegra Krieger, be sure to check out the artist's Facebook and Bandcamp.
