Buckle up for a midnight ride with Charlotte, North Carolina indie maven Dylan Gilbert and his new single + music video “Moving Forward” — debuting here today at Vents Magazine. A beautifully chaotic underworld filled with dark shadows of avant-garde pop, it brings to mind the best of James Blake, Perfume Genius, and FKA twigs.
Watch the video now streaming below — produced by fellow North Carolina artist JPH — and the second taste from Gilbert’s upcoming 2020 album I’ll Be The Lakebed.
About the song, Gilbert comments “Many people in my life, in this generation, seem so despondent and exhausted with the world around them and the system that’s in place. Along with that — our culture is completely consumed and obsessed with nostalgia, myself included. “Moving Forward” is about a radical humility to stand up out of whatever murkiness we’re experiencing and look to the future with some kind of optimism.”
