Effortlessly blending elements of pop, rock and jazz, fresh indie five-piece Goldsands come through with an excitingly unique and authentic sound.
Their latest single ‘A Place Far Away’ tells the story of a faded film star’s unlikely bond with a neglected young woman after crossing paths in Tokyo, drawing inspiration from cult classic movie Lost in Translation. Sonically it perfectly captures the size and scale of the movie’s cityscapes, whilst also encapsulating the mood of the relationship between the two characters.
Self-produced in a converted apartment in Birmingham, the track was later mastered by Geoff Pesche at the legendary Abbey Road Studios.
Goldsands’ genre-defying sound is most comparable to groups like Radiohead, The Beatles and Coldplay, and is the result of the band members’ eclectic musical backgrounds. Liam’s rock background provides a driving groove, Tom brings a jazz flare, Ramsey takes his cue from the experimental sounds of the 60’s, James gives suitable guitar ambience and Matt is a sucker for a pop hook
Two of the bands members Matt and Tom Rhodes are brothers, adding to the group’s tight sense of synergy.
The group is set to embark on a UK tour spanning from London to Edinburgh.
