East London based duo Hi Frisco have been delivering tune after tune since their debut release ‘Snowfall‘ last Autumn and they’ve quickly cemented themselves as a “must watch out for” band. ‘Gold‘ is a refreshing psych-rock track packed full of mesmerising instrumentation and tremendous energy. One standout part of ‘Gold’ is dramatic outro which sees one of the heaviest parts of any Hi Frisco track yet.
Speaking of ‘Gold’, Hi Frisco have said: “Initially, ‘Gold’ was way out of character from the songs we’d been writing. The main thing we wanted to avoid in taking it forward was making it too overtly rock. We wanted it to be more weird/blown out, than heavy.”
“Henry says that lyrically, the song is a lament about trying and being knocked back, by myself and my own insecurities. The chorus line “as pure as snow, as strong as gold” is having that innocent blind ambition to make it all work out somehow, the seeming invincibility of youth, and unwavering drive which I always struggled with. For me, it’s a song of aspiration.”
