The Melbourne scene keeps pumping out quality acts, and by all accounts, Gold Class is next up. Shortlisted for the Australian Music Prize, the band is post-punk at its core, but singer Adam Curley’s gripping delivery conjures up shades of Morrissey and the lyrical despair of Protomartyr, over harrowing bass lines and guitars that wind in a thousand directions.
“Get Yours” is the final single before Gold Class drops their sophomore record, Drum, August 18th on the excellent L.A.-based Felte Records label. The track opens with a big, driving bass alongside nasty drums, before Curley delivers his chamber-like baritone on a tight and imposing arrangement. “You’re the wrecking ball/I’ve been waiting for,” Curley sings in a heady interpersonal exploration.
Gold Class is one of the more engaging punk projects we’ve heard in a minute. Pre-order Drum here and check out “Get Yours” along with a video filmed at their sold out show at The Corner Hotel in Melbourne below.
