Imagine your dog just died, your slutty girlfriend cheated on you, and now you’re listening to every sad song that Morrissey ever wrote in one sitting. What would you do? Sit in isolation and cry? Contemplate your life in a forlornly fashion? If you were Australia’s Husky Gawenda and Gideon Preiss, you would write some songs that would ultimately become your debut album, Forever So.
Forever So is a meticulously crafted collection of dreamy pop songs with catchy hooks and memorable melodies. They are able to capture vanishing hopes and dwindling dreams to create something beautiful. I wish I could go through a period of crushing despair so that I could write an album like this one. Unfortunately I’m the one who breaks hearts, not the one who has his heart broken.
