Forget, Forget's sound is lush, expansive, and multi-layered, yet it is crafted to be fundamentally accessible. It has been labeled as indie-rock and chamber-pop among other things.

Forget, Forget's sound is lush, expansive, and multi-layered, yet it is crafted to be fundamentally accessible. It has been labeled as indie-rock and chamber-pop among other things. Guitar, synth, and string parts are layered atop a foundation of tight, driving drums and bass. Three- and four-part vocal harmonies fill out the arrangements lushly and beautifully. Tyler DeVos is the primary lead vocalist, with multi-instrumentalist Patia Maule contributing lead vocals on several songs.

Forget, Forget's debut album, "We Are All," is driven by songwriter Tyler DeVos's work with people living with mental illness. The lyrical content is a collage of quotes and excerpts uttered by people with psychosis who live in several of the group homes where he works. "DeVos puts those words – cloaked in metaphor and wild imagery, and yet strangely universal – to a sweeping soundtrack that heightens the otherworldly nature of the words," writes Emily Burnham of the Bangor Daily News.

Seeing Forget, Forget perform live is an unforgettable experience. The performance of the band is tight and commanding, and the full power of the lyrics is delivered compellingly and passionately. Forget, Forget has won over crowds at numerous venues in Northern New England, including Port City Music Hall in Portland, ME, The Middle East Upstairs in Cambridge, MA, and the Penobscot Theater in Bangor, ME.

"We Are All" will be released in September 2013. It is dedicated to people who live with mental illness.
