Gold Record formed in quarantine 2020 while spread out between the Bay Area, California and the High Desert, New Mexico. Gold Record came into being to keep a strong creative focus during lockdown and celebrate their love of collaboration and adventurous pop music. The trio recently shared the lead-single first “Glow The Day” off their EP Volume Five, which drops on October 23.
“Glow The Day” is described as a retro dance fusion anthem about finding the silver lining in challenging situations. “Once quarantine had gone on for a while, there was all this talk about things going back to normal and getting at some non-specific future date.” says Gold Record’s Evan Michalski. “We wanted to write a song that captured the spirit of what we were trying to achieve with this project: how do we make things better and more positive for ourselves right now – even in this weird ass time?” “The line that really captured the spirit of that which became the guiding mantra is ‘let’s find pleasure in the gray’. This was our reminder to ourselves that sometimes you’re in bizarre situations that feel out of control – but you still have the opportunity to make something beautiful out of it.
