The band jams out single ‘Woolf Music’ in a haunted woodland.
With its accompanying video, which you can check out above, shot in the low light of Wiltshire’s supposedly haunted woodlands, Thought Forms’ new single ‘Woolf Music’ is a loose psychedelic jam of scatty drum fills and crunchy guitar tones.
This song features on their third album release, Songs About Drowning, and shows them adopt a tighter, more sophisticated approach to songwriting than on their two previous full works. It also sees them move away from the drawn-out, shoegaze-influenced reverb that those albums somewhat featured more of. This single plays counterpart to first single, the equally heavy and atmospheric ‘Forget My Name’, which is also available on Soundcloud.
Thought Forms are currently on tour with the instrumental/math rock band 65daysofstatic, playing at the UK venues of Islington Assembly Hall in London, Marble Factory in Bristol, Plug in Sheffield, the University of Newcastle and the Glasgow School of Art. Tickets and full listings are available for this tour via Thought Forms’ website here. Songs About Drowning is out on November 4.

Thought Forms have announced a UK tour, which kicks off in February 2017. The band will release its 3rd studio album on Invada Records, November 2016.
Thought Forms announce third record Songs About Drowning and share lead single Forget My Name.
For this latest outing, the Wiltshire trio have expanded to a quartet, with producer and Portishead bassist Jim Barr joining the ranks.
The record is built upon improvisations and explores new instruments – it’s a marked change from what’s come before, but arguably their most direct and streamlined release to date. Forget My Name certainly teases a quietly vicious side to Thought Forms, with silvery layers of noise weaving between gorgeous vocal harmonies.
Songs About Drowning is released via Invada Records on 4 November.
Thought Forms are set to extensively across the UK and Europe this autumn with 65daysofstatic.
