You might hate this: the insanely catchy new single from Golden State
You might hate this. We might hate this. It’s too early to tell. Right now we can’t get it out of our heads and when a song is that catchy and infectious, the obvious thing to do is infect other people.
Golden State are a 4 piece LA rock band. Singer James Grundler use to be in Paloalto, who had two Rick Rubin-produced albums on American Recordings a while back.
If World On Fire was a stick of rock it’d have ‘radio hit’ written all the way through it. Like Bono getting conjugal with Kings Of Leon, it takes The Big Music of the 80s – twanging Bunnymen guitars, skyscraping Lillywhite-esque production, Eno-style atmos – and gives it a 21st century twerk. Prepare to be ear-wormed:
‘World On Fire’ is onsale via State Champ Records on September 30th. http://www.goldenstateband.com/
