LISTEN TO GOLDEN DAZE
Longtime friends and new collaborators, Jon Elliott of The Floorwalkers and Nick D’Andrea of Nick D’ and The Believers have strayed from their respective roots in funk pop and alternative to create the sprightly sound of Doc Robinson. The Columbus-based artists called upon creatives in local company to inaugurate the partner project, enlisting instrumental talent from members of Mojoflo, Forest and The Evergreens, Hebdo and more. The result is becoming commonly known as Columbus’ newest supergroup.
Nick D’Andrea said of the song’s creation, “We wrote ‘Golden Daze‘ in homage to the golden moments of our youth; chopping it up, getting into trouble, smoking weed out of apple cores, playing with fireworks, listening to bone thugs in the suburbs, hanging out with the ‘bad kids.’ The song is like driving away from childhood, looking in the rear-view mirror with a smirk on your face and a tear in your eye. It’s very much a tribute to dear ones who we’ve lost along the way, and to the feeling that life can never be so simple and fun again.”
“Golden Daze” was preceded by singles, “It’s Over” and “Summer Moon,” both noted by press for distinct, fun-loving infectiousness. Doc Robinson will return to the recording studio this month in preparation of a sophomore release, forthcoming in 2017.
