Two ex-lovers stand in a railway station, one gets on the train the other does not. 6 757 million light years away a cluster of stars is sheared into a cascade of lights as they slam into an upper-dimensional artifact. The Forever Now wrote about both. Based in Copenhagen, Denmark, The Forever Now’s Canadian/Filipino Monty de Luna came a long way since BIRP.FM referred to their song Throw it Down as, “an atmospheric sonic palette brought to life”, and Indie Obsessive awarded it a “contender for ‘The Summer Hit of 2017’”.
Combining cinematic elements with indie rock, synth-pop, and singer-songwriter music, the artist carves out a filmic experience with each release, defined by their genre-defying style (Digital Subculture once said their work is “genre-blending, in ways that are unfathomable”) and relentlessly do-it-yourself approach. The Forever Now have been on critics’ radar from their debut, when according to TEEZ FM, “they have impacted the music scene with their proper debut single ‘Last Day of the Year’”.
The project has often drawn comparisons to artists such as M83, The Naked And Famous, MGMT, CHVRCHES, and Oh Wonder. The Revue described their work as: “Incredibly beautiful. It is part cinematic, part cosmic, part operatic, and completely dazzling. The production work is sublime, radiating of the spatial pacing of Anthony Gonzalez’s (M83) work on Oblivion. The song, however, reaches sonic heights that Gonzalez wasn’t able to achieve … Simply spectacular.”
