The Gods They Made return with pop-rock anthem “Live For Now”






Swiss indie-rock and pop band The Gods They Made invites listeners on a journey of liberation with their compelling debut album, Breathe In, set for release on May 10, 2024. The standout track, “Live for Now,” encapsulates the band’s ethos of embracing spontaneity and living in the moment, amidst a backdrop of uncertainty and chaos.

Mastered, mixed, and recorded by Steve Lyon (known for his work with Depeche Mode, the Cure, and Eric Clapton), “Live for Now” exudes a polished yet raw energy that sets the tone for the album. The track’s evolution from its origins as the demo “Our Escape” into a minimalist anthem demonstrates The Gods They Made’s dedication to refining their sound while maintaining emotional authenticity.

At the heart of “Live for Now” is a message of seizing the present and finding solace in music during times of isolation. The band, based in Geneva, Switzerland, formed during the global pandemic, channels themes of love, loss, and self-discovery throughout Breathe In. The addition of a haunting violin, skillfully played by keyboardist Irwin, enriches the track’s narrative, adding layers of emotional depth that resonate with listeners.

The Gods They Made’s ability to blend indie-rock sensibilities with pop influences shines through in “Live for Now,” making it a compelling introduction to their debut album. With its universal themes and intimate arrangements, the song invites listeners to reflect on their own desires for escapism and spontaneity.

Overall, “Live for Now” is a testament to The Gods They Made’s promising trajectory in the indie music scene. It’s a track that not only captures the zeitgeist of the times but also promises a bright future for the band as they continue to explore and define their musical identity.
