about

Forest Bees is what happens when you take the daughter of Indian immigrants; feed her on a steady diet of Bollywood, Suicide and shoegaze; strand her as one of the few women of color in a sea of white indie boys playing guitar; drop her into the warm lap of motherhood; write her off as 'boring and domestic'; fire her up to reform her band which only inspires her to start something new. And that leads us to these songs about identity + fluidity + the mindfuck of realizing that who you are is not always who you are allowed to be. Songs about growing up never seeing anyone who looks like you on tv or in magazines (Off Color); post-partum depression (Hollow Bones); inarticulate longing (Golden Dream); and the ultimate revenge fantasy of being about to turn your back and walk away from it all (Dust).
