Anne by The Forces: Review
The Forces released its first single of its self-titled EP on June 29th – Anne. It’s a gift to the world to lift up its spirits despite no reason to smile or hold on to. Subtle hints of electronic and synth waves kick start the song with piano sounds. Thanks to Joshua Boon’s sense of combining a potpourri of organic tunes, this song instigates a hopeful mantra, a collection of layered harmonization that almost creates a gospel aura. If you could close your eyes for a few moments after the song crosses its 3-minute mark, you could imagine a man clutching to his chest, breaking a sweat, singing at the top of his lungs on a mahogany wooden-floored stage in front of a pitch-black cheering audience that just can’t get enough. The man with the wonderfully unique voice is Tim Condor, joining all the way from Manchester, UK to contribute his talent that blooms within a mishmash of a thousand sounds.
In spite of the unending conspiracies or unpleasant changes in the surrounding, this song finds a way to build hope within us. Somehow there’s peace in knowing that everything will be just fine. The positive message behind “Anne” comes together in its chorus as the “Beatles-esque” music, as Josh likes to call it, makes you want to raise your hands in the air, sing along and feel unified in the hopes of a new chapter tomorrow.
