Beautycore Band Gold Frankincense and Myrrh (In short GFM) have released a video for ‘Give Me A Sign’ the brand new track is taken from GFM‘s upcoming EP. The video can be watched below.
Gold Frankincense and Myrrh (In short GFM) started in 2011 as a cover band and consist of 3 (young) sisters – CJ shines as the band’s lead guitarist and shares vocals with Maggie, who rocks dual instruments on bass and keys. The youngest of the group, Lulu, anchors the band with an intensity on drums that is way beyond her years.. The trio hails from Florida, and apparently they refer to their style of music as “beautycore”, which is a mixture of hard rock and metalcore that is played by all-female bands
GFM is the new generation of bands in the Christian rock/metal scene. GFM infuses positive, youthful energy into traditional rock styling. The group’s family ties inherently developed a tight musical bond, though GFM didn’t officially begin touring until 2014. Since then, GFM has been sought out for both religious and secular events throughout the Southeast, playing festivals, community events, traditional venues and the Axes and Anchors Cruise in Feb. 2016.
GFM’s edgy sound resonates in the familiar dark corners of its heavy metal genre; but with influencers like Skillet and We As Human, GFM’s lyrics shine with a universal light. Through their individual journeys, GFM manages to blur the lines of the Christian sub-culture, reaching both conservatives and listeners beyond the devout. Drawing its name from the original gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh, GFM proves that while the guitar’s distorted, the message is clear – the mission is the music.
So-far they have released an EP “Death of Giants” (2015), “Identity Crisis” their debut full length album has been released in Oct. 2016
