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.
Featured song: “Daylight Colors”
