Rising Artist michel ko drops ‘GONE’. The pop goodness, inspired by the 80’s and 90’s summers, the artist reflects on lost relationship with his past lover and croons that he “wanted [her] gone but now [he] she’s her different sides”. Regrets of lost opportunities become the base for love and a new vision fulfills the growing and learning person he’s become.
With long-time collaborator and friend KRICK, the song takes shape, immediately as the one to count on to understand the plight of such many broken hearts. Sometimes our hearts break, in hindsight, and nothing else can be done to make things better. But life is a sought out series of promises, and in that sense, we’ll be better for the next person to cross our paths.
