Forest Swords is one man, Matthew Barnes from Wirral, UK. His studio EP - 2010's Dagger Paths - received huge critical acclaim. Despite it's EP length it was named FACT Magazine #1 album of the year. Acclaimed debut album "Engravings" was released in August 2013 through Tri Angle Records and was named Best New Music by Pitchfork on release. It is a long-awaited second glimpse at Forest Sword's singular, distinct musical explorations and sounds like a vision finally realized. The producer has spent 2016 readying his second album for imminent release and collaborating on new material with the iconic Massive Attack.
