Listen to Bars of Gold's First Wheels Single, "Coffee With Pele"
Let’s face it, a lot of indie rock nowadays has a lot of flare and fanfare but not a whole lot of grit and bite. Sure you’ve got a handful of bands that have a bit of snarl, but most of them fall under garage rock banners and rely on distorted, lo-fi recordings to bulk up their intensity. But bands like Bars of Gold stare that stereotype in the eyes before kicking it square in the teeth.
Bars of Gold is comprised of Marc Paffi and Brandon Moss of the post-punk outfit Bear vs. Shark and the tightly wound instrumental noise-pop quartet Wildcatting. The band has been around for years now, but their new single “Coffee With Pele” proves that the melding of these two spastic acts can produce some smooth results.
Check out the track below. Wheels, Bars of Gold’s sophomore effort, is set for an Oct. 29 release on Bellyache Records.
