Watch and share: Gibbz- “Bright Lights”
Gibbz ponders going another round with his lover during a feel good, electro pop jam featuring lush synthesizers and a trumpet solo by Eric Benny Bloom of Lettuce.
– Consequence Of Sound
“One of the EP’s highlights is unquestionably ‘Bright Lights,’ an effervescent little synth jam with a throbbing beat that unleashes a cathartic chorus upon the listener.“ – THE 405
Consequence Of Sound has debuted the video for “Oh My God”, Gibbz second single from his upcoming EP ‘Oh My God’ Out 12/16. When discussing the track Gibbz said, “Oh My God was inspired by a conversation about sexual vocalizations. I was curious why it seemed so common and natural for people to mention a deity while in the middle of having sex. Oh My God the first line of the ‘act of contrition,’ which is a Christian prayer expressing sorrow for sin. I was thoroughly entertained by the visual my mind created of a new couple continuously having sex and just, sort of, ‘covering the bases’ in the eyes of God. Making sure whomever they prey to is aware that they know that they’re doing a dirty thing, but they have no intention of stopping. Also, I love a good reason to write a sexual song with a tempo perfectly matched for stamina. It features trumpet player, Eric Benny Bloom of Lettuce in the solo section.” Make sure you also check out his previous single “Bright Lights” here.
In 2014, New York native Mike Gibney wanted to get away from his past, working for touring artists as a sound engineer and tour manager, to focus on writing and recording his own music. His debut EP “Who Gibbz a F#@$” showed that he was no longer content with being behind the scenes, but rather yearned for the spotlight. Following up with the “Chardonnay” EP, he aligned himself with other artists that began to see him more as a peer, than a hired hand. He toured extensively through the US and Europe with Gramatik, Cherub, Exmag, Ghost Beach, and the Floozies before independently releasing his first full-length album, “Above Water,” in 2016. Gibbz will finish off 2016 with another EP titled “Oh My God,” before tackling his first headlining tour beginning in 2017.
