Yasmin de Laine “Hope Forest”

“Hope Forest” by Yasmin de Laine is a dreamy and ethereal track about a murder, the dreamy production soaked in reverb really lets the melancholic and ominous emotions to play through. The production is minimalistic and the mix feels organic and natural. I can imagine the tragic story of “Hope Forest” being something unfortunately forgotten without the songwriting efforts of Yasmin de Laine to preserve it. Check out this delightfully dark, somber and brooding song below!


In the 1970s, a man murdered 10 members of his family at a farm in Hope Forest, South Australia. He received just 8 years in prison for his crimes.

Shortly after the incident, unaware, my mother and her family moved into the same homestead.

This is a true story.
