Forward is the crescendo of every teenager's life when he must transition from boy to man. Each song examines this inward state of self-reflection. The anger, the awkwardness, the grief, the loss. But ultimately the acceptance that "he knows exactly where he should be for the very first time". This affirmation of life explodes on the track Glow. Which monumentally shares the best attributes of The National and Youth Lagoon. It's an unforgettable listen and an album you will not soon forget.
