Breaking: Gold Man
Gold Man—Not With Us
RIYL: As Tall As Lions, Maroon 5, Into It. Over It.
There are so many things that Gold Man does right. With “Not With Us,” the guitarist and singer-songwriter shows an adept sense of an alternative-soul sound that manages to blend pop and jazz sensibilities in an interesting, new way. It gives his songs this unidentifiable quality, as it seems to borrow equally from indie rock, pop, jazz, soul, and blues in this even-keeled way. Imagine a very stripped back As Tall As Lions with a penchant for more easy jazz tangents and you approach Gold Man’s stylings. It’s a fresh sound, and one that as a project shows a whole lot of potential from this LA-based musician. He just released his first single with a well-attended release party in Venice where the packed room grooved appreciatingly and demanded an encore.
