'quietly captivating vocal melodies and minimal backdrops… an intimate study of the effects of place on a person' — The Wire

The debut album You Know What It’s Like (2016) and follow up EP The Garden (2017) – both released on Blackest Ever Black – established her as a singular talent who navigates the inbetween zones of post-punk, industrial, narcotic dub and dream pop. Formerly of Melbourne’s Mole House, dal Forno is also a member of the BEB affiliated trio F Ingers with Samuel Karmel and Tarquin Manek.

Live she performs as a duo with multi-instrumentalist and electronic musician Mark Smith. She also holds down a monthly NTS show featuring original productions alongside diverse inspirations ranging from minimal synth to folk and art rock.
