So you guys have come a long way from your first release, You’re the One for Me back in 2013! You’ve toured countless times and played festivals such as SXSW, Bonnaroo, and most recently Bunbury Music Festival. What has been your most memorable experience on tour thus far? Wow, we really have done a lot of things since 2013 and it’s all been incredible. Honestly, what stood out in my mind about this latest tour is just how loyal and passionate our fans are. In every city there are these people who we recognize and feel like family because they’ve been to so many shows. One girl just attended her 31st show. This is what makes GGFO what it is.
What cities or countries are on your bucket list of places to perform? I know you guys will be performing in Hong Kong in August, that’s pretty exciting!
We’d love to travel to as many countries as we can with the band! There are so many places we haven’t been, and we hope to slowly check them off the list. More of Europe and Asia are definitely high up there.
The GGFOUR EP is set to be released at the end of the week! Can you tell us a little bit about what to expect on this album? We’re really digging “Gone” with its catchy drops and easily-relatable lyrics. What are your personal favorite tracks?
Yes! All of the tracks on this one are personal and meaningful in certain ways. Can’t wait for people to hear the couple that aren’t out yet, and for all of the released singles to live together. It’s hard to pick a favorite because they are all personal, but I’ve been having a lot of fun performing “Easy”.
Who (or what) inspired you to make music?
Everything and anything inspires me. This EP is inspired greatly by loss and transition.
What message do you want to send to fans who look up to you and are inspired to make music because of you guys?
To absolutely just do it! Write songs, make beats, whatever you want to do! Don’t wait for anyone to help. And don’t think about any kind of reward or destination, just do it because it makes you happy.
Do you have any pre-show rituals?
Yes. We do a thing we call the “body deesh”. It’s basically a vocal jam followed by a hands-in-the-middle type thing.
Thanks so much for taking the time to chat, and we can’t wait for the album drop this Friday! Thank YOU!
