“Anywhere Else” by Gold Spectacles is a groovy track with some mellow vibes that are still somehow driving. The soothing vocals coupled with syncopated digital drums are super fun. The lush textures and instruments sound like they’re all having a conversation with each other. A super sonically pleasing tune!
“We wrote ‘Anywhere Else’ on a trip to Barcelona, our first time abroad since the pandemic, because we didn’t want to go home. We borrowed a guitar and recorded all the parts on our phones with a rough sketch of the vocal line. Over the following days, we pieced together the lyrics in tapas bars and on the metro. The desire to leave everything mundane behind was overwhelming and the thought of running away never looked so good. As soon as we got back to London, we went straight to the studio to finish it. We ended up keeping some of the Spanish guitar we recorded on the voice memos so we don’t forget the tapas and Cava anytime soon.”
