Forwind kicks 2016 off with three powerful new EP’s by Tokyo's Tomonari Nozaki. The first instalment 'Credence' is Tomonari's first new material on the label since his hugely well received debut 'North Palace' in 2013.
The new compositions see Tomonari experimenting with even denser layers of sound, morphing acoustics and chugging industrial rhythms, all while keeping his distinctive and much loved tape recorded sonics hissing and gestating away.

I can't put into words how it feels to listen to this album. The sensation of increasing anxiety and dread throughout the stages is unique. It makes me want to keep listening and theorizing about what's happening in the songs, especially in the post-awareness stages. D0DGAMES
I feel and see strong visuals when listening to Falling Into The Sea. They are relative to the title. I see grainy black and white video. I see repetition. I see the sweeping ocean water. To me, a chord within me is struck as there is extreme melancholy and depth to these tracks, especially "..Sea". Portis
