Günther Paulitsch, Alex Connaughton, Mario Fartacek and Julian Pieber – known from bands such as Mynth, Polkov or Shaun Berkovits together form Good Wilson. The four-piece band invented the genre “Sky Gaze” to describe their music, to fill in a blank space on their Facebook page and to undertake a redefinition of the genre. The distinctive characteristic of Sky Gaze is a dash of clumsiness, which can be heard on their debut single “Walk The Talk”, which was released in summer 2019 together with a sports ground-vibey music video.
With their second single “Divine”, released in September 2019, Good Wilson stick to their signature sky-gaze vibes: “The song deals with setting goals in life. However, striving to achieve these goals comes with certain precognition, which can be very scary and overwhelming. When you set your goals too high, the weight of their importance can crush you. It’s hard to define what you truly believe in, your principles and whether to believe in yourself. Trying to find something to believe in, something that drives you, your very own personal purpose of life – that’s the biggest challenge ever. Reminiscing about the past, the concept of time becomes inverted and continuously forces us to reflect and justify decisions to no one but ourselves.”
