“Gone’ is about losing something or someone abruptly and how that can make you go a bit crazy. Gina’s voice is quite hoarse in the recording, which helps convey the desperation& frustration. There’s also a kind of excitement in that ‘fuck it’ feeling. The track is overall more positive than negative with each chorus ending ‘but I’ll find somewhere to put it’
Gone by The Desert, from Bristol, sounds like traditional trip-hop tracks from the 90s made by fresh artists. That dark feeling, suitable for the night time or grey rainy day. Gone will be part of their latest unreleased EP by Funnel Music. The lyrics are visceral, it makes totally sense if you’re someone who just lost a dear one.
