Nanaimo, B.C. band Gold & Shadow are set to release their debut full-length album Torch this fall and we’re thrilled to be premiering the first single, “Search for Sara.” A story of a family’s grief after a mother’s death, Gold & Shadow mirror the emotional tides of the lyrics with complex guitar arrangements and a mighty percussion section. With a textured pop-rock sound similar, though piano-less, to their west coast brethren We Are The City, to say Gold & Shadow make powerful music is stating the obvious.
Sure to be filled with rich rock music, according to the band their album:
“…is wide in scope and sound, embellishing the guitars and drums with organs, harmonies, and widescreen ambience. A reflection of its West Coast origins, Torch is a perfect companion to the wild, oceanic landscapes of Vancouver Island, and a testament to the hope, beauty, and inspiration found therein.”
Torch will be released September 11, 2015 but in the meantime give “Search for Sara” your vote in the Telus STORYHIVE contest.
