Hailing from coastal Anacortes, The Lonely Forest is experiencing a wave of success with their newly released album Arrows. Busy as bees on a beaver, they represented Washington rock down at SXSW, and upon returning from Austin premiered a music video for their single “We Sing in Time.” The video was directed by Seattle’s own Matt Daniels and features local coniferous settings, reminiscent of the band’s name.
