Los Angeles post-hardcore/experimental duo One Gone Thus will release their debut EP Impermanence on June 3rd. The record serves as an introduction to the band’s eclectic sound that incorporates varying styles and elements.
“We went about constructing the whole album with the idea of making melodic and catchy songs with an experimental bent,” says guitarist/vocalist Ryan Sabouhi. “We chose to incorporate a wide variety of unique progressions, tones, and instrumentation all in the hope that we might build a more multidimensional soundscape.“
Though the record is not a traditional “concept” album, Sabouhi says the whole EP is an exploration into the notion of impermanence and how all things are subject to change. “All of us are caught between the ever changing worldly winds of pleasure and pain, praise and blame, fame and disrepute, gain and loss. We wanted this EP to be a way for us to artistically investigate these deep and abstruse matters,” says Sabouhi.
Impermanence will be available for free on June 3rd via Bandcamp, but the band is also offering a pre-order exclusive for $1 that includes one bonus track.
