Only eight more days to go until FOREVER STILL unleash their sophomore full-length release »Breathe In Colours«. For this record, Denmark’s highflyers have adapted a dark musical concept, inspired by a dystopian cyberpunk future in which humanity flees into cyberspace, and the fact that some of the biggest works in that genre, Blade Runner and Akira, are set in 2019.
After recently explaining the lyrical themes of the album which centre mostly around inner and outer wars and the need to overcome struggles and self-doubts, singer Maja now speaks about the album title »Breathe In Colours« which was inspired by an early memory that she kept with her from her teenage years. Furthermore she sheds light upon the binary code language hidden on the album cover – learn more in this fourth album trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zfegra5k-y0

When Philip K. Dick wrote what would later become Blade Runner, no one would have believed that the dystopian cyberpunk future he imagined 2019 to be, would be so similar to the world we live in today…
This realisation is what sparked the idea for the new album from FOREVER STILL –»Breathe In Colours«. With their sophomore full-length album, the band has evolved their songwriting skills even further and didn’t want to produce a carbon copy of its predecessor »Tied Down«, released in 2016. Instead, the new album drifts both into more epic moments, while frontwoman Maja Shining also delivers her heaviest screams to date. And for the first time, the songwriting duo of singer Maja and multi-instrumentalist Mikkel Haastrup have decided to make the album a more collaborative effort and therefore brought their long time live drummer, Rune Frisch, into the studio with them to record the drums – a big step for the two young musicians who handled everything on their own on the previous record, from music videos to band photos, the album production and even concert booking. After sweat, blood and tears and the surprising use of a theremin, the result ofFOREVER STILL’s efforts to break through the numbing grey, is a surprisingly diversified and mature album that breathes fresh air – and colours – into the bland rock scene.
