Vancouver-based Gold & Youth write songs with a hazy, breezy, nostalgic air to them. Equally adept at crafting jams for West Coast summer drives as they are at soundtracking a midnight adventure in the city, their blend of electronics and other instrumentation lays just the right bed for their haunting vocal melodies. Fans of 80s synth-pop should take note: though there's not much retro about this, nods to the likes of Depeche Mode and Roxy Music are definitely there, bringing electronic sounds to life in the most organic ways.
