Gold Class - Twist In The Dark
Australian 4-piece Gold Class have shared their latest offering, a post-punk pounding gem called ‘Twist In The Dark’.
The track’s taken from their upcoming second album ‘Drum’ due for release in August.
Check out the video for Twist In The Dark below.
Outlining the approach to the album, vocalist Adam Curley said: The week we started to write ‘Drum’, my relationship ended and I was left alone in a draughty old house, which belonged to a friend of a friend. In the house, I sat around with my notebook, the quiet hours cut with news from friends and the TV: the suicides of musicians and writers I’d known and queer kids I hadn’t; the systematic abuse of vulnerable people, the constant mockery of anyone on the outs.
“I knew what the purpose of the album would be when I wrote the repeated line in ‘Get Yours’: “There’s none left here and all I need.” I wanted it to be a record of defiance, a resistance to the idea of scrambling for a place at a table that wasn’t set for you. A sort of a love letter to anyone who not only can’t meet the standard but doesn’t want to. I wanted it to be a record of rage and ecstasy and endless nights and sex and dumb fun and ventures in solidarity. Not just an album of urgency and longing, but one of abandon and a reclaiming of a self beyond boundaries.”
Gold Class will be playing a handful of dates in September as follows:
20-23 Hamburg – Reeperbahn Festival
23 Amsterdam – Paradiso Noord
26 London – Moth Club
