New single from Daisybones “Beautymark”

The single is just one piece of the story which Gold tells through a catalyst of songs. The album is an interpretation of the theme presented in the coming of age book The Outsiders. In essence, the core thematic elements of the album’s lyrical content is identity, and through that, a question of the fragile innocence of youth. Gold, however, likens itself more to young adulthood in a post-coming of age battlecry. Throughout the 10 songs, Daisybones unleash a flurry of synth-dusted melodies that sprint through an ebb and flow of tempos and soothing sing-along choruses that dive bomb into your cerebellum. It’s an explosive and dynamic mixture that bubbles over in the best possible way. Stay gold.
