“Turn Off This Song,” from local indie pop troupe The Lonely Forest is NPR’s Song of the Day. Citing The Lonely Forest’s rising status within the Pacific Northwest music scene, NPR describes the group’s sound as both “playful and emotionally gripping”: “Turn off this song / Find someone to love / Turn off this song / You can listen to it later / Go outside,” singer John Van Deusen implores, implicating himself as just another navel-gazing narcissist in need of some fresh air. As his band ebbs and swells in perfect concert, “Turn Off This Song” serves as a catchy call to arms, not to mention one of the best and most honest slices of pop music around.” Have a listen to the tune for yourself via the above link.
