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.”

When Philip K. Dick wrote what would later become Blade Runner, no one would have believed that the dystopian cyberpunk future he imagined 2019 to be, would be so similar to the world we live in today…
This realisation is what sparked the idea for the new album from FOREVER STILL – ‘Breathe In Colours’. With their sophomore full-length album, the band has evolved their songwriting skills even further and didn’t want to produce a carbon copy of its predecessor ‘Tied Down’, released in 2016. Instead, the new album drifts both into more epic moments, while frontwoman Maja Shining also delivers her heaviest screams to date. And for the first time, the songwriting duo of singer Maja and multi-instrumentalist Mikkel Haastruphave decided to make the album a more collaborative effort and therefore brought their longtime live drummer, Rune Frisch, into the studio with them to record the drums – a big step for the two young musicians who handled everything on their own on the previous record, from music videos to band photos, the album production and even concert booking. After sweat, blood and tears and the surprising use of a theremin, the result of FOREVER STILL‘s efforts to break through the numbing grey, is a surprisingly diversified and mature album that breathes fresh air – and colours – into the bland rock scene.
