GROUNDED Season 3, Ep. 05 feat. Forest Ray and Racoma

Forest Ray

Forest Ray is a five person psychedelic rock and garage outfit based in Seattle, WA. Founded by Peter Sumic in 2015, the group experiments in the analog and
psychedelic, combining guitar driven psych rock, with elements of raw synth-laced post-punk, twangy rock n' roll, garage and organ-laden pop. 

Their first two full lengh LPs, Musical Witchcraft and Laughing, were released to vinyl over 2016-18. They have recently toured the US and played SXSW 2019 in support of their 7" split record with Lasso Spells, released Spring 2019 on Nashville's

Cold Lunch Recordings label. In the fall of 2019, they released a new LP, Faded Reflection along with a collection of basement recorded analog tracks titled, the “Wedgwood Tapes”. Before the COVID-19 pandemic struck the group had also recorded their fourth studio album, “Black Pine”, during the winter of 2019 to be released in the fall of 2020. The album, which is an homage to lost loved ones, includes an array of twangy psychedelia, americana influences and starkly more mature compositions. Black Pine, borrows it’s name from the english translation of “Crnobor”, the autochthonous trees of the croatian coastal region, Dalmatia, where songwriter Peter Sumic’s family immigrated from, which served as a source of nostalgia and inspiration in the album’s songwriting process.
