Brooklyn group Gold Streets intertwine smooth, dreamy melodies and crunchy psychedelic rock, making for music that’s simultaneously slick and trippy. The contrasting male/female vocals of guitarist Norman Vino and drummer T. Almy complement one another well — hers light and angelic, his wailful and dissonant — and help to balance out the group’s overall sound. The emphatic drum and auxiliary percussion work intertwined with the bass playing of Gizella Otterson move their songs forward at a charging pace as the guitars of Vino and Johnnie Wang weave layers of psychedelia amidst it all.
Gold Streets’ debut album, Looks Like Fireflies, is available via 8×8 Recordings and their latest EP will be out in January 2012.
Upcoming tour dates:
12/15/2011 @ Pianos, NYC
1/13/2012 @ Bowery Electric, NYC
