Gungor releases single “I Forgive You”
Experimental Indie artist, Gungor, isn’t above composing a good dance beat. He proves that art can be low-key groovy with his new single “I Forgive You.” The second single from Gungor’s latest album features Isa Ma on vocals. The two have effortless chemistry, and their voices combined make for a cannabis-friendly falsetto. Gungor is that rare type of artist you both take seriously and don’t set high expectations for. His neutrality defines him, but his work is as vital and credible as anyone.
An Author, Podcaster, and Father, in addition to being a musician, Gungor is enclosed inside his garden of expression. He’s published two books and is heavily influenced by his spirituality. He may seem like a cliché on the surface, but his latest offering doesn’t hint at insincerity. He falls into a specific subculture of naturalistic performers. Weird and quirky are adjectives he’s probably grown accustomed to, but as is typical, these are oversimplified classifications.
“I Forgive You” is little more than a simple skeleton of a song, but it is instantly memorable. It has a familiar, airy quality, comparable to acts like Spiritualized or Air, and seduces the senses immediately. It’s not a verbose song, lyrically, yet it has a peculiar literary quality to it. The combination of Gungor and Isa Ma likely makes the track so distinctive. “I Forgive You” may seem a bit pedestrian in a different set of hands.
Technically speaking, Gungor is a band that is essentially the brainchild of one man. Michael Gungor is a man who strives for acceptance and empowerment in his message. He seems less concerned with perception and more preoccupied with substance. Gungor has amassed an impressive social media following thanks to his tireless Touring and recording. Gungor’s YouTube channel boasts about 41,000 followers, which is no small feat for a band that isn’t a mainstream name.
The music video for “I Forgive You” is a subtle yet spectacular celebration of Indie Rock. With an 8 MM style presentation, we see Gungor and Isa Ma in the forest. They appear to be large vases on their heads that look brass and heavy, especially Gungor’s. The two meander about and occasionally lip-sync. There’s a quirky wholesomeness to the scenes, but it doesn’t take away from the artistic value.
“I Forgive You” is another solid addition to Gungor’s respectable catalog. The song is easy to understand but still possesses a gravitas that makes it worth revisiting. At this point, Gungor has become a prolific songwriter, and his near-iconic status continues to take shape. This is a piece of music you can’t deny, and why would you want to? A song like “I Forgive You” in the musical ecosystem makes it a much less polluted environment. Of course, Gungor wouldn’t have it any other way.
