Forest Music & New Artwork

We call it Forest Music, some of these songs, because we feel connected to the very sound of that. Musical genres blend and leap and jump and share, we cannot adhere to one of we tried, yet we are always asked what type of music do we play? At one concert in 2019, we played a set list of our melodically softer and quieter songs, and a stranger in the audience approached us afterward and said “It sounds like Forest Music,” and we were all excited smiles.

If something as revered by us as a forest could produce something as revered by us as music, then to even capture a hint of that in the imagination fills us with humble glee.

We are currently recording “Ophelia’s Song, “”From the Blue Green Sea,” “Followcat,” and “Quiet Solitude. These are songs that tell some of those tales.

Dear Friends,

As we all know, the world is in a great state of unease. New York City is just one little part of that, and staying as safe as we can is all we do for today.

Our shows have all been postponed, so we will be playing online, sharing our interview series, making and sharing artwork, comics and memes, live streaming, with other bands and artists and friends, and doing what we can. Please see our youtube channel, instagram and facebook page for daily content (links are above.) We are grateful for that chance, grateful for each other, and grateful for you.

Luna the Mooncat is very happy right now, because The Repressions are staying at their castle and she gets even more attention than usual! Love to all of you and the animals!

-Barbara and Nate

Friday January 31st at The Dolphin 🐬! Music from the Forest, the City and the Sea…

This Friday is going to be very special… The Dolphin Bookshop has a magic that surrounds you before you realize it. The Repressions will  play in the stage/ seating/cafe area, with a beautiful bookshop to the right, more books and toys to the left, original art and color all around… It is not just “one” kind of place, and therefore inspiring and imperceptibly comfortable. No cover charge and all ages are welcome… The music begins at 7pm!
