About Gold ClassArtist Enquiry | Official Website
Formed in 2014, the band quickly drew heads to their live shows, backed by the release of a limited-run 7-inch.
In the autumn of 2015, Gold Class went into Melbourne’s Head Gap Studio for four days with producer Simon Grounds (GOD, Twerps) to record ten songs to tape. The result is the band’s debut album, It’s You, led by first single ‘Life as a Gun’, with its firing lyrical offering, “You can hold your finger on the trigger.”
Elsewhere on the record, political protest meets Australian kosmische; proud perversion rubs against lo-fi jangle, and outsider longings become rallying choruses as Gold Class play out the push-and-pull of their first album’s title. The record was released to critical acclaim Aug 2015 in Aus/NZ by Spunk Records and in the USA and Europe by Felte.
