New York City neo-psychedelia five-piece GIFT have shared their new single “Stuck In A Dream” alongside an accompanying music video.
The song features on their much-anticipated debut album ‘Momentary Presence‘, out today, October 14th through Dedstrange. Grab your copy here.
Of the track, the band’s TJ Freda states: “‘Stuck In A Dream’ is about being stuck in a loop. The idea of being stuck in a dream, stuck in the idea of someone or something, and not being able to look at it from the outside, to reveal if it’s good or bad. While ‘Lost For You’ is about the magical feeling of being completely lost in a person or a place. The song was written about fully diving into something without thinking about the future. Being in the moment and fully enjoying it. Knowing the feeling is fleeting and is going to fade but not caring in the moment.”
Inspired by Ram Dass’ 1971 spiritual guide and countercultural landmark Be Here Now, Momentary Presence is a meditation on working through the anxiety and self-doubt that we all, at some point or another, carry. Specifically conceived, written and recorded with the idea of a full-length album being a fully contained work of art, the songs on Momentary Presence reportedly tease something seismic coming around the corner, while featuring dense layered productions that feel and sound self-assured, complete, definitive and impermeable. This is rooted in the band’s belief that each moment has richness, complexity and singularity. And once it’s gone, it can’t be recaptured or repeated.
