Up and coming artist, Goon Des Garcons* has recently released his debut album, Sheesh! and this is one project you need on your summer playlist. Sheesh! is the perfect combination of strong lyrics and addicting beats, which makes for one unforgettable project.
We sat down with Goon to talk about his debut album, what he has coming up next and his love for his fans. Press play on Sheesh! while you read our interview with Goon below!
Who is Goon Des Garcons*? What makes Goon Des Garcons* the artist that he is?
I’m just a normal guy haha. I think what makes me the artist I am is that I don’t take myself or my “character” too serious. Some days I wanna rap rager beats, some days I wanna sing over bossa nova samples. I just ride the vibes.
What inspired you to start creating music?
Falling in love with the process. I think once you get your rhythm of being able to take something from your brain, in real life it’s kind of hard to ever stop wanting to do that.
How would you describe your music?
Ever changing. WORK IN PROGRESS. Minimal/maximal. Indie with a big budget lol
Tell us about the inspiration behind your new album, Sheesh!?
2020 and the many moods of it. Last year was crazy. This album has so many different vibes and each one also depends on the context you listen in. I felt like the word “Sheesh” is like that too.
What do you want fans to get from Sheesh!?
Inspiration and the vibes to help you conquer the world.
What’s your favorite song on the album?
Sheesh, that’s hard haha! depends on the day. “CLANKS” is my morning go-to though.
What are some goals you want to hit as an artist?
I want a following that loves, respects and appreciates me. I want to get a big song, not necessarily a hit but a song that stops time/shifts the culture a bit. I also want to just be able to go into different mediums. Star in a movie, direct a movie, build a house. I want to be able to do whatever. I want more days than not.
Music is a universal thing and artists do a good job spreading the love for music. How do you feel about being a part of something that is really important in the world?
It’s my biggest joy, honestly.
What do you have coming up? Tours? Videos?
Lots of videos, more music. Still figuring out touring but I’ll be doing “Day N Vegas” in November. Stoked!
Anything you would like us to include that we missed?
Shout-out all the creatives out there, my home state of Arkansas and my Maniac Sounds fam!
