ARIA-nominated, Melbourne rockers KINGSWOOD today expose a new side of their music with the release of the soulful new single ‘Golden’ along with an official video for the track. The second single to be revealed from their forthcoming second album, After Hours, Close To Dawn, (which is set for release via Dew Process on March 3), the song sees the band trade in their trademark big riffs and throaty vocals, and in their lay down a grooving bassline, beautiful falsetto harmonies, and a tinge of Wurlitzer that all combine into a sound that will lead you to see KINGSWOOD in a whole new light.
‘Golden’, which premiered via the airwaves on triple j’s Goodnights, is a seductive, slow jam, which again highlights the unexpected and subtler nuances about what lies beneath KINGSWOOD’s rock n’ roll swagger. The band’s guitarist and songwriter, Alex Laska, says the song is inspired by the intense sensations triggered by the spark of human connection.
“Golden is a reflection on the weird split between euphoria / isolation that I’ve often felt after having really connected with someone, particularly romantically, in those early stages, you’re vibing high off the experience but only you and perhaps the other person can share it, sometimes only you…”
The band has also announced local supports for their fourteen-date, triple j supported, national headline album tour. Joining KINGSWOOD on the road will be Brisbane vibe-punks WAAX, Tasmanian artist Maddy Jane, with her rollicking, indie-pop as well as Melbourne thrash-punk quintet Batz.
