If there's one band that truly captures these tumultuous times, it's GOLD. Marrying the understated yet captivating vocals of Milena Eva with tempestuous guitar layers and rhythms, GOLD creates the soundtrack to binge-watching the world collapse.
GOLD released its debut record Interbellum in 2012 on Germany’s cult label Ván Records. No Image followed in 2015 released by Ván in Europe and Profound Lore in the USA, and in 2017 GOLD released the brooding and hypnotic Optimist.
While the latter was unanimously praised as a tour de force in songwriting, atmosphere, and existential innuendo, GOLD would definitely break through with their 4th album and Artoffact Records debut Why Aren't You Laughing?
On each record, the song craft has deepened and widened as Milena Eva’s poetic lyrics and delivery have connected strongly to the depths of the soul. The band as a unit are primal and whirling; full of life, and yet a memento mori.
Recalling the experimentalism of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, the dark and sweet beauty of Kristin Hersh and Throwing Muses, but firmly rooted in a powerful, yet artsy rock vibe, GOLD have tapped into something truly unique.
The band’s delicate balance has caught the attention of the likes of Converge, with whom they toured in 2016 and 2017, as well as New Model Army, who invited GOLD as support for dates in 2018.
Through relentless touring GOLD have manifested their reputation of a mesmerizing live experience. This has gained them a dedicated and open-minded following across scenes and genres.
