Gone Gone Beyond surely has a few tricks up its musical sleeves with its new album 2030 due out on June 25th. Blending the organic with neo-folk, this four-piece demonstrates a graceful poetic execution with its electronic and acoustic hybrid mix. Mixing the worldly vibes of Khruangbin with the colorful folk Of Monsters and Men, Gone Gone Beyond has its grip on vast musical spectrums.
2030 is a collection of existential love songs, exploring our connection to each other and the planet. The title of the album refers to a year, in the not-so-distant future, which many believe is a tipping point for humanity. The final lyrics on the album state, “I hope I see you in the year 2030,” which speaks to a motivation the band shares to propagate seeds for a brighter future.
Glide is premiering the song and video for “Another Earth” (below) that was filmed at the iconic Hotel El Ganzo in Baja, CA. The band displays its intimate side here as vocalist Kat Factor rings in silvery harmonies, while her bandmates tenderly lay the earthy. foundation.
“‘Another Earth’ represents so many things to me. It’s a song about choice. What kind of world do we want to live in? How do we want to treat each other? A song can mean so many different things for each individual. The most important thing for me with ‘Another Earth’ is how it makes me FEEL. It’s brought me to tears several times. Every time I hear it, my heart swells a bit. In that way, I don’t know if it really matters what it’s ‘about.’ It gives me the feels, and I like that a lot,” says band member David Block.
