The more I hear from Vancouver’s Gold And Youth the more I’m impressed. And it doesn’t hurt that I’m secretly in love with their newest band member, Louise Burns, who is an incredible solo singer-songwriter in her right.
Okay, I guess not so secretly anymore.
The band combines dark classic rock with subtle electronic tinges, catapulting their sound into a contemporary alternative event that really has to be experienced. They’re about to set out on a headlining tour to support their album “Beyond Wilderness”, which was released earlier this year (Arts & Crafts). The album was produced by Colin Stewart (Black Mountain, New Pornographers); the “Jewel” video above was directed by Natalie Robinson, and stars Wynn Holmes and former So You Think You Can Dance Canada winner Nico Archambault.
