So It Goes
“But she did look back, and I love her for that, because it was so human. So she turned into a pillar of salt. So it goes.” – Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five
So It Goes is formed by pessimistic optimists who find joy in darkness. In Slaughterhouse-Five, the phrase “so it goes” follows every occurrence of death no matter the circumstance. Of course, to look back is human, and humanity, including its darkness, weakness and ugliness, is both fascinating and enduring, but when one is encumbered by the inevitable and tragic vicissitudes of life, there is no choice but to keep going. After all, “for whatever we lose, it is always ourselves we find in the sea.”
Influenced by The XX, The Pixies, Radiohead and Warpaint, the music of So It Goes can be described as indie rock with a dark psychedelic/garage twist. In their songs, So It Goes often explores the insignificance of human existence, the feeling of powerlessness in a mundane society and the idea that everyone is at the mercy of time and change. Their music is made for the sensitive humans who feel like bugs in amber. There is always one in loneliness. If the band can touch one person through their music and let that person know there are other bugs in amber, then they would be truly happy.
So It Goes喜歡在黑暗中尋找樂趣，是由樂觀的悲觀主義者所組成的另類搖滾樂隊。對於人生中很多無可避免的無奈，最後也只能繼續前行，直到找到自己。畢竟人性的黑暗、脆弱和醜惡正是它的迷人之處。受到The XX、The Pixies、Radiohead和Warpaint的影響，So It Goes的樂風較為黑暗、迷幻，成員都希望透過音樂探究寂寞、人的無力以及真實與虛幻間的糢糊界線，而若這樣的音樂能觸動一人，則已足夠。
