Reflector #23: Give Until Gone – “Goodbye From Lisbon”

Fun fact: Frontman Dan Sena is the grandson of Jorge de Sena, a Portuguese poet who was exiled during the dictatorship.

“Reflector” is a series by Atlas correspondent David Soares about songs by non-Portuguese bands inspired — in many cases, rather mysteriously — by the westernmost European nation.

“Goodbye From Lisbon” can be found on Settled For The Art Official, the only album released at the turn of the century by Give Until Gone, a rock band leaning on the emo side from California.

One interesting fact is their frontman Dan Sena is the grandson of Jorge de Sena, a Portuguese poet who was exiled during the dictatorship and died in that region of the world in the late ’70s.
This song is quite true to its genre and the time and place it came from.
I do recommend Jorge de Sena’s poetry though.
