The five gentlemen who bring the Fort to life met a decade ago at the famously freewheeling site of institutional discovery called Wesleyan University. After releasing two early EP's, which earned the group touring spots with HAIM, Future Islands, Passion Pit, and Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Fort Lean are debuting their first full-length Quiet Day. The album is a collision of moods and tones, approachable and ambitious but delivered with a sideways subtlety. The collective songwriting is cohesive yet contains the disparate perspectives of its five writers. This is versatile stuff, appropriate for a crowd at a party of or the introspective headphoner.
