If you’ve yet to be swept off your feet by epic songwriter/romance enthusiast/pop dreamboat Gibbz, please consider this a formal introduction.
After completing a lengthy string of shows with Cobrayama this past Spring, we were anxiously looking forward to what would transpire from the creatives spending time on the road. The result? A collaborative album, ‘In Mid Air’, set to release later this summer. This last Tuesday though, the two dropped the first of many joints for our listening pleasure.
‘Letting You Go’ starts out with Gibbz’ soulful croons over a poignant future bass production as the protagonist reflects on past mistakes and his loss of a lover.
When asked about the songs’ meaning and the new project, Gibbz was happy to provide us with his insight:
On “Letting You Go”
“The song addresses the misconception that the grass is always greener on the other side. Lusting over something created in your mind could mean losing something you love with all of your heart.”
“Cobrayama and I met as he was in Exmag, and I was still figuring out the type of music I wanted to make. Cobrayama brought a more experimental and dark feel to that group, while I was attempting to write happy pop songs. Since the early collaborations with Exmag, Cobrayama and I have been getting together and fusing our styles to write introspective, gloomy, sensitive pop songs; releasing an EP in 2016 and now an LP later this summer.”
Harnessing the ability to turn even the most lovelorn melodies into songs you can’t get enough of, Gibbz has given us even more to look forward to with this new project. Stay updated with all things Gibbz and Cobrayama through the links below:
