Groovy and fun indie that will fit nicely between Miike Snow and Passion Pit. The beat and layers of textures in Gold Spectacles “Even” combined with an uplifting feeling in the melody drew me in and hooked me. The stand out is just how uncommon some of their choices of instrumentation are, stream “Even” by Gold Spectacles below!
Gold Spectacles is the collaborative output of two British songwriter/producers, making sounds and art from their modest home studio. Drawing on an eclectic range of influences from Paul Simon to Phoenix to Lykke Li and favouring a DIY approach, Gold Spectacles make baroque-pop. Sharing the writing, recording and production responsibilities, and creating the visuals and artwork, the pair do everything “in-house”. Since Autumn ‘18, Gold Spectacles have been shedding a song a month in tune with the lunar calendar. This November sees the release the duo’s self-titled debut album.
