Freshly formed post-hardcore/experimental duo One Gone Thus from LA has announced that their debut EP Impermanence will be released independently on June 3rd. Recently, they have premiered the lyric video for their single “Self & Soul”. The eclectic mix on the upcoming EP incorporates varying styles and elements, but aims to deliver the band’s explicit message that “all things are impermanent and subject to change,” says guitarist/vocalist Ryan Sabouhi, who is also a former member of the Alternative band The Body Rampant.
“We’re not necessarily easy to categorically define, but we feel that we’ve created something very unique in both its sound and message,” Eagle continues in a statement to New Noise. “This EP is comprehensively DIY and we are both extremely proud with what we have made and accomplished thus far. We care about the message that we send because it carries with it an immense weight and responsibility and though it’s obviously meaningful to us, we hope that others will be able to find meaning in it as well.”
Impermanence will be available for free on June 3rd via Bandcamp.
About One Gone Thus:
Built upon the foundations laid by a short-lived experimental project, ONE GONE THUS is the fully realized musical vision of Greg Eagle and Ryan Sabouhi. The musical duo is poised to redefine the paradigmatic idea of what it means to be a band. It has become increasingly apparent that the once objectively outlined boarders of the musical landscape have become irreversibly blurred, and for ONE GONE THUS these archaic designations have only clouded their aspirations for true artistic expression. As such, they have abandoned them altogether in the pursuit of something greater. The duo has been influenced by a vast array of dynamic and pioneering artists across multiple genres, and ambitious as though it might be, the group hopes to bridge the gap between commercial accessibility and musical experimentation like none before. Lyrically, they strive to inspire by example, investigating the most fundamental issues concerning philosophy, morality, and self-examination. Their ethos, though generally cryptic in nature, is actually quite explicit. They deeply understand and endeavor to impress upon others the truth that, “all things are impermanent and subject to change”. Letting their own emotional experiences bleed into, saturate, and permanently stain the music that they create, ONE GONE THUS holds nothing back from its audience as they strive to manifest completely in all that they do as artists. Not one’s to speculate about what the future holds, the duo does however believe one immutable fact; this is only the beginning.
