Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh (or GFM) have released a new single titled ‘I Don’t Need Your Fantasy.’
“’I Don’t Need Your Fantasy’ is about breaking stereotypes and letting go of the false perceptions that you think you have to carry,” says bassist/vocalist Maggie English. “You don’t have to live a cookie cutter life. You don’t have to change yourself just so people might like you better. We’re being unapologetically ourselves, and we’re taking the world by storm.”
After their success with “Oh! The Horror!” EP, the sisters in GFM have been busy. An acoustic EP of four of their more popular songs was released, and they did a cover of ‘It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year’ the end of 2019. This new single does not have a music video yet, but given how much the band loves doing them, it probably will not be long. ‘I Don’t Need Your Fantasy’ has GFM‘s signature sound that is easily recognizable while introducing some great new sounds.
If you enjoy the melodic content of Paramore, and the character themes of Slipknot, then you have found the perfect matchup in GFM. The three sisters of GFM basically came out of the womb playing music; they really had the screaming perfected back then. They started taking music lessons around the age of five, and all three ended up falling in love with music. As they grew up, they decided that they wanted to pursue this love for music professionally, and have been putting blood, sweat, and lots of tears (girls amiright?) into creating a business and career out of GFM. The most important goal of GFM is to use their gifts to reach people for God and to always spread a positive message. The stage is their home, and they want to share their home with their fans.
GFM is not your average teenage girl band… they’re sisters for crying out loud. And no, they’re not a Christmas band. GFM really got things going on their first trip to Nashville. There, they recorded their first album Identity Crisis and started honing in on their skills and discovering who they wanted to be. A year later, the girls got their first shot at touring. GFM got to meet so many fans across the U.S. and created even more. The demand was so strong for GFM, that they went out again the following year on another U.S. tour. Germany then decided they wanted a taste of GFM and brought the girls over in 2018. GFM was met with thousands of loving fans and ended up being a festival favorite.
With their music, GFM wants to show that women and young people can play music. Music can be encouraging and not just negative. GFM is breaking boundaries in so many areas of the music industry, and in doing so, they are bringing life back to rock and metal. The girls want to show the growth they’ve experienced through their music. They believe in being open with the fans and showing them the worst and best sides of themselves. They hope to encourage the listeners, help them keep fighting as they are not alone, and they wish to help others become more established in their faith.
GFM comes alive on any stage presented to them. Their favorite thing about playing is the response of the crowd. The way that everyone gets lost in the music mesmerizes them, and the power to control the actions of a room full of people excites them. Beyond the stage, the coolest thing to GFM about shows is the openness of the fans and the impact that their music is able to have on its listeners. They are overjoyed any time a fan explains their life-changing story, especially if they were encouraged by the girls’ music. GFM loves getting to know the fans beyond their social media tag.
GFM is for fans of A Day to Remember, Butcher Babies, and Flyleaf.
GFM created their own genre, why? Because they can: BEAUTYCORE
