Danish outfit Forever Still dropped the third single off their upcoming album “Breathe In Colours”. The single is titled “Is It Gone?” and comes with a music video. Watch it below.
The band’s vocalist Maja Shining explains the meaning of the song: “The overarching thought behind ‘Is It Gone?’ can be summed up in the chorus line saying “it’s only gone if I let it go”, which is something I think a lot of people can relate to. We hold onto all these negative things and thoughts, some that might never even happen. I remember reading one time that 85% of things we worry about never come true. That’s a lot of trouble for no reason at all. Sometimes you just need to let it go and stop obsessing over things that are out of your control.”
The song is taken from the band’s second studio album “Breathe In Colours” featuring 10 new songs and 2 bonus tracks. Inspired by “two of the most influential cyberpunk works of all time, Blade Runner and Akira”, the album has a strong cyberpunk/dystopian atmosphere with “more electronic and raw sound”. Maja continues: “Instead of looking in, we turned our focus to the world and saw it in a state of change. It somehow reminded us of the dystopian cyberpunk future, we’d seen in books and movies when we were kids, where megacorporations own our governments, the world is on the verge of ecological collapse and humanity is fleeing into cyberspace building walls around themselves and closing their eyes to the horrors of the real world.”
