After our participation in the music industry #TheShowMustBePaused initiative on June 2, we are committing ourselves to serious change going forward.

Outside of ongoing listening, protesting, educating ourselves, and sharing resources, we will be:

– Donating all $$ (both label and artist shares) from Bandcamp Days on June 5th and June 19th to various Black and anti-racist organizations.

– Making monthly donations to similar organizations at home in order to help build our communities.

– Pulling all ads with Facebook & Instagram, instead spending these budgets on smaller, progressive outlets.

– Improving diversity and focusing on inclusivity within our roster, with events we are involved in, and on our team.

We welcome any other suggestions on how we can use our platforms and resources to help so please stay in touch.

Neigh,

Team Forward / Backward

“unstoppable”The New York Times
“headier and more purposeful” – Consequence of Sound
“exceptional”
 – LOUD Women

Closed Chapter, the latest single from Gianna Lauren, is currently featured in the New York Times as part of their Playlist series alongside Kendrick Lamar and Gillian Welch.

The song is a blunt look at the vicious and endless cycle of social media on our lives. A conceptual video for the song, filmed by Nicole Cecile Holland and directed by Rebecca Falvey, explores “algorithms fucking up mainstream beauty standards, [and] acknowledging [those] fucked up beauty standards but still trying to participate in the music industry”

 – Watch video // Listen to Closed Chapter // Pre-Order Vanity Metrics EP  –

Consequence of Sound also recently featured the track as part of their Origins series where Gianna further explains her influences for the song. It follows Spark, the lead single from the upcoming EP, Vanity Metrics, available on Bandcamp November 6th and on streaming services November 13th.

See Gianna live in concert:
December 5 – Tatamagouche, NS: Grace Jollymore w/ Norma MacDonald
