Iconic alternative/electronic band GOOSE has returned with the feel-good indie-pop anthem “Fear of Letting Go,” lifted from their just-released new album, Endless, out today. Fusing a heady dose of ’90s-inspired electro-pop melodies, alongside modern sweeping production, “Fear of Letting Go” charts a new direction for the Belgian quartet.

About the track, lead singer Mickael Karkousse explains:

“Just before leaving for Motorbass studio to record the album, we remembered a song we worked on some time ago, but never really finished it. It had a good vibe, a melody and although it wasn’t much more than that, we knew we had to take it with us and give it a chance. The song really came to life in the studio. We added a shoutout to the street where the studio is based ( Rues des Martyrs ) and talk about an encounter with “Les Stephanie” on a night out after studio hours. The song reminds us of the good times with friends and to be around everybody you love.”

Endless is the first new album from GOOSE in five years and began as an avalanche of ideas in Safari Studios, before GOOSE opted to bring in French producer Victor le Masne who sat down with the band at their HQ, before inviting them to Motorbass Studios in Paris – one of the most renowned recording hubs in Europe.

Having come full circle twenty years on from their Bring It On debut, Mickael Karkousse looks to the future laughing:

“We’re just getting started…”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
