Forever Still Posts “Is It Gone?” Music Video Online

Only two more weeks to go until Forever Still unleash their sophomore full-length release “Breathe In Colours.” For this record, Denmark’s highflyers have adapted a dark musical concept, inspired by a dystopian cyberpunk future in which humanity flees into cyberspace, and the fact that some of the biggest works in that genre, Blade Runner and Akira, are set in 2019. With their first two singles, “Rew1nd” and “Breathe In Colours,” the do-it-yourself band have already presented the rocking side of their new release, and today, they introduce their listeners to the capturing power ballad “Is It Gone?.”

“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”, Maja explains. “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.”
