If mixing business with pleasure is a recipe for trouble, someone forgot to tell FXRRVST (pronounced forest), the fast-emerging Toronto-based duo of Holly Forrest and Matthew Fuentes, whose devotion to each other is seconded only by their shared commitment to crafting ridiculously catchy, super-emotive alt-rock.
FXRRVST songs are at once instantly accessible yet utterly unique and, in 2017, they made their debut at commercial rock radio stations across Canada (including The Edge, LIVE 88, The Rock, Rock 95, K106, Rock 102, X92.9 and more), internet radio such as IndieCan, HitMusicCanada, AllCanadianRadio,and SoundsCanadian, all culminating in Youtube and Soundcloud shares and features plus stellar reviews from around the world including:
“This is one of those albums you'll hear and wonder "Where has this been all my life?" You need these sweet, infectious sounds in your life whether you realize it or not”
