GOLD


 Why Aren’t You Laughing? 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 its most well-received record to date, the brooding and hypnotic Optimist. The latter was unanimously praised as a tour de force in songwriting, atmosphere, and existential innuendo.

On each record, the songcraft 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 - rounded out by Thomas Sciarone, Kamiel Top and Jaka Bolič on guitars, Tim Meijer on bass, and Igor Wouters on drums - are primal and whirling, full of life, and yet a memento mori.

GOLD wonderfully blends the confidence of post-metal with the fragility of goth rock - with electrifying results. 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. In 2019, GOLD will tour Europe, including performances at Roadburn and Hellfest.
