SO IT GOES (HK) So It Goes is currently a 3-piece girl band based in Hong Kong with Emily on vocals and guitar, Emily on bass and Emily on drums. Besides from having the same first name, the 3 Emilies have another thing in common: they are pessimistic optimists. 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. So It Goes has gone through an unexpected eviction from their band room (which led to a court hearing), theft of their hi-hat stand, a few bad live performances, some harsh criticisms, countless equipment malfunctions, and even the sudden departure of one of the founder members...but the love for music is so strong and so tied to their very existence that the band is simply incapable of giving up. Emilies don’t fight, but survive and hope to give people that same strength to go on until that one little special moment makes everything come to life. After all, “for whatever we lose, it is always ourselves we find in the sea.”
