James Deacon – Gone

SAMA-nominated artist James Deacon continues to release some of the most impressive blends of indie-pop and rock to have emerged from South Africa in recent years.

‘Gone’ serves as a powerful and cinematic self reflection that explores depression, and shows a vulnerable side to the Deacon that listeners may not have seen before.

“I wrote ‘Gone’ whilst dealing with some pretty overwhelming bouts of depression. I’ve struggled with anxiety and depression for a long time and for me personally it comes in waves. Music has and will always be my way of interpreting the world around me and the world within, so ‘Gone’ comes from a moment where I felt like the world around me was equally as chaotic as my own mind, so I sat down and pulled this one from the depths of my heart in the hopes that it might help people who are dealing with their own anxiety and depression.”
