Forced Random ~ I May Believe In Me

FORCED RANDOM I May Believe In Me Artwork!

Who is FORCED RANDOM?  An intriguing London collective revolving around artist and multi-instrumentalist Oliver GirdlerFORCED RANDOM is Oliver Girdler (Vocals, Electric Guitars, Acoustic Guitar, Casio) , Matthew Taylor (Bass, Piano, Juno, Backing Vocals), Eddie Halliday (Guitar, Backing Vocals), Dan Joyce (Synth), Ed Bernez (Drums) and Will Harvey (Violin)!

My first impression of “I May Believe In Me” : A hypnotic and mesmerizing lo-fi journey of assured self-reflection with a somewhat jaded undertow of dubious certainty!

My take :  Listening to “I May Believe In Me” by FORCED RANDOM pushes me as close to an out-of-body musical experience as I can remember ever having.   Through the light flickering of guitar strings and the soft jittery-like vocals of self-reassurance, I can picture the shadow of myself off in the distance blindly staring out into a deep unknown.  Unfettered and deep in thought, “I May Believe In Me” plays out like a broken record of delicate contemplation across my mind, daring me over and over again to redefine who I think I am.  Only to awaken to the me I believe I have always been!

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
