Interviews About Albums: Goodbye Meteor - We Could Have Been Radiant (2024)

In this new interview, we sat down with the French Post-Rock band Goodbye Meteor to ask questions about their album "We Could Have Been Radiant".

1. What can you say about this new EP/CD?

"We Could Have Been Radiant" is our 1st album, after 2 EPs. It was recorded at Dunk! Studios in Belgium, mastered by Dave Cooley in Los Angeles, and released on Dunk! Records in February 2024. It is available on vinyl, CD, and on all streaming platforms.

2. What is the meaning of the EP/CD name?

"We Could Have Been Radiant" is a nostalgic message, about the fact that humanity had all the cards in its hands to do great things, but unfortunately that wasn't always the case.

3. Which one is the composer of the CD/EP?

We are all 4 (Goodbye Meteor) composers of this album.

4. If you had to pick one song, which one would you pick?

It's a complicated question because each title has its own personality. Destructuration and No Signal were chosen as singles because they're the most rhythmic, but we think the album should be appreciated as a whole.

5. Is there a special message in this EP/CD? If there is, what is it?

“We Could Have Been Radiant” explores human emotions, moving from hope to inevitable destruction. If the first part of the album follows our EP “Metanoia”, closing the chapter on the quest for a positive outcome for humanity, the end of the album illustrates this disillusionment and wishes to guide the listener towards the saving light provided by the present moment.

6. Are there some lyrics that you'd love to share?

There are very few lyrics since the music is almost totally instrumental, and the message has to be conveyed more through the music.

7. Which inspirations have been important for this album? Like musically or friends, family, someone you'd love to thank especially?

The bands we're closest to musically are Mono, Explosions In The Sky, and This Will Destroy You... we've also been notably influenced by the American band Of The Vine, with whom we were lucky enough to play a few years ago.

We can really thank everyone who supported us and made this album possible, especially our girlfriends.

8. Something to add?

Feel free to follow and support us on social networks, come and see us live, and spread the word!
