A For­est (from Seven­teen Sec­onds, 1980)

“A For­est is just, ‘Wow!’ Whereas Pic­tures Of You is ro­man­tic, the essence of A For­est is a bit stronger. It’s like get­ting lost – I sup­pose it could be get­ting lost in love, lost in life, or just let­ting your­self get lost in some­thing. There’s some­thing not hugely mas­cu­line about it, which I warmed to; it’s quite slinky and melo­di­ous. There’s so much emo­tion in his voice, and in the gui­tars and other sounds. I find that sim­plic­ity so sat­is­fy­ing. It was only a cou­ple of months ago we were told that Robert Smith was maybe in­ter­ested in book­ing us for Melt­down [ at London’s South­bank Cen­tre], and then he def­i­nitely was and we were booked. It’s great be­cause of­ten, when talk­ing to jour­nal­ists or see­ing ar­ti­cles about us, peo­ple will say, ‘If you like such and such, you might like this band’ and some­times The Cure is that band. That’s good that [ Smith] felt some res­o­nance.”
