Gwilym Gold: A Paradise
October 2nd 2015 | Brille Records | Albums
From being the man at the front of Golden Silvers, to inventing the still-ahead-of-its-time generative music format Bronze - with his remarkable seven-song suite Tender Metal - Gwilym is now ready to remove the mask with a record on which he finally defines himself as an artist: A Paradise, out on October 2nd from Brille Records (on vinyl LP, CD & digital formats).
Much of ‘A Paradise’ was composed by Gwilym alone at home at the piano, before he took the songs to co-producer and longtime collaborator Lexxx (Wild Beasts, Fatima Al Qadiri, Darkstar). The two then spent the best part of a year together in a small room in Konk Studios, London, toiling on this extended labour of love. There are also co-production contributions from James Young (of Darkstar), True Panther artist Hyetal and Bullion, whilst four songs feature composer Nico Muhly’s verdant, dizzying string arrangements.
Three tracks from the album - Unknown, I Know I Know and Breathless - are streaming now on www.gwilymgold.com with accompanying visuals by artist Colin Henderson.
