Canadian combo Gold & Youth write songs tinged with nostalgic desire. Their music evokes memories of neo-noir Los Angeles, cinematic haze, and midnight solitudes, drawing on aesthetics and instrumentation reminiscent of the 1980s. Dark and expansive synthetic textures are punctuated by programmed drums and interwoven with melancholy vocals, detuned synth melodies, and understated guitars. Their debut full-length, Beyond Wilderness, varies from the cold, industrial sounds of Depeche Mode to the tenderness of Avalon-era Roxy Music.
