Performer Notes
  • "Trouble Fun," the name of a song on Drum, sums up the duality of Gold Class' heavier yet more nuanced second album. Working with the Drones' Gareth Liddiard, the band opts for a polished post-punk sound that brings out more of their heft as they build on the driving rockers and chiming ballads of It's You and chronicle doomed -- or at least complicated -- relationships. Not surprisingly, much of Drum was written after vocalist Adam Curley suffered a breakup, and his volatile emotions are channeled into a powerful physicality on songs like "Twist in the Dark," where jostling riffs and rhythms echo Joy Division, the Cult, and Gold Class' Felte labelmates Ritual Howls. "We Were Never Too Much" delivers a combustive cocktail of regret and nostalgia, while the careening "Get Yours" adds some sensuality to the band's raw sound. A large part of Drum's growth comes from Curley's increasingly sophisticated vocals, which take the lead on moments of gloomy beauty such as "Thinking of Strangers" and the aforementioned "Trouble Fun." It all makes for a more rounded -- but still formidable -- portrait of Gold Class' music. ~ Heather Phares
