Wicked Songs: Twist In The Dark by Gold Class

The Aussie band Gold Class dropped a new single Twist In The Dark a few days ago, I can’t keep up with all this new music at the moment. Plus Aussie and New Zealand tour dates and also it’s released on their own label, Barely Dressed and both this new single and album is produced by Gareth Liddiard from The Drones. A limited edition 12” with a remix by genre-destroying electro-visual duo Friendships. All Copies are shipped from Australia and you can order at goldclassbdr.bandcamp.com

Rarely has punk music been so danceable. Twist In The Dark sounds almost like an ancient call: pounding toms and bass that open into a churning guitar melody and Adam Curley’s booming and rhythmic voice. From its first eerie notes the track holds its breathless momentum until the final beat. Lead singer Curley states that with the song he wanted to “push everything further” and it certainly represents a giant leap forward from the band’s previous work in terms of sophistication, sonic clarity and hook after hook after hook.
