Grammy-nominated singer Gungor releases a genuine and vulnerable track, “A Million I’s.” The single is the very first of their forthcoming album, released in the Fall of 2022. It is brimming with passionate lyrics guaranteed to leave listeners feeling captivated and inspired while they sing to the tune.
“A Million I’s” is a song that radiates joy and healing as the listener is taken on a journey full of acceptance and positivity. With a choir of infectious beats, the track will bring listeners’ hearts to confidence in themselves and an unavoidable improvement of the soul.
Gungor is known for its creativity and unending imagination, and its music is filled with complex sounds and distinctive beats. The group believes that sound and lyrics can be a vehicle to express oneself, create and connect, and enjoy using them to empower and accept people.
A seemingly paradoxical combination, Gungor is a Christian psychedelic group. The taboo and introspective content of their new track, “A Million I’s,” makes this clear. The style this song possesses is much like that of Tame Impala. However, it shares some of its sound and meaning with other Christian artists, including chants like “Ya, hey, ya, hey, ya, hey, keep on breathing” in a gray and soft tone. The lyrics, “I am the movement, the verb of what is, the ground of all being, in you do we live, in you is I am, I am is in you, I am that I am, I am in the truth” are very devout sounding mantras that imply the group’s religious leanings.
Not all is straightforward, with the overall sound of the instrumentals and the production being trippy and psychedelic. Many Christian groups are vehemently opposed to psychedelic substances and even the sounds associated with them, striking down artists like Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin in years past as “Satanic.” Gungor, however, embraces the psychedelic, funky, and abstract sounds and imagery and uses them to build a unique and defiant style. It does resemble Tame Impala enough that it’s not entirely unheard of stylistically, but it differs from it enough to sound distinct.
