FORCES & FURY INTERVIEW

Astrid Holz and Kat Ayala of Rackett fame unleash their new project Forces & Fury with a great new single Stormy Weather. We threw a few questions at the girls and they fired their answers right back at us.

Pulsating rhythm and production meet strong vocal melodies; a stirring debut single, ‘Stormy Weather’ is the perfect introduction to exciting new duo, FORCES & FURY. As the new project of Astrid Holz and Kat Ayala of Rackett fame, Forces & Fury is the culmination of a shared desired to explore the textured sonic soundscape of alternative electronica and rock music.

The duo’s talent and musicianship has been proven through years of touring and shaking up of live venues around the country with Rackett, a band that has prided itself of producing unabashed raw music with weight behind it. Multiple sold out shows, impressive performances alongside massive acts including The Darkness, as well as praise across music publications and national community radio alike has provided Kat and Astrid with even more determination and vigour when it comes to the formation of their new collaborative project.

Kat and Astrid’s foray into a slightly different lane with Forces & Fury still encapsulates this energetic and wickedly intelligent approach to songwriting and production, but with a new creative door unlocked. Bringing a wealth of technical experience into the fold, Kat and Astrid (both unashamed gearheads) have been able to forge their own sound exactly to their own specific ear and inclinations. Astrid, a sound engineer by trade, has been incorporating production in with drumming professionally throughout her entire career, while Kat’s talent as a multi-faceted guitarist has seen her earn endorsements by Vox Amplification and Strandberg Guitars.
