The latest single from Kim Gordon continues her move away from the sound of Sonic Youth into a newer, more electronic and experimental one. "Bye Bye" sounds more like an artist like Peaches or Fever Ray than the No Wave, post punk, or just straight rock we have associated with Gordon for forty years. It's a dark and intensely moody song that still includes enough feedback to make long term fans happy. If you liked Gordon's 2019 album No Home Record, you're going to love "Bye Bye." Her first solo album only hinted at the new sound that is realized with "Bye Bye."
You can watch the Coco Gordon Moore starring video for "Bye Bye" below. The Collective is due out on March 8 on Matador Records, and is available for pre-order here. For more on Kim Gordon, check out the artist's website. Upcoming tour dates are below the video.
