BARS OF GOLD RELEASE NEW SONG "ATLANTIC CITY"; NEW ALBUM "SHELTERS" DUE APRIL 12
Detroit based post-rock, indie sextet Bars of Gold unleashed"Atlantic City" today from theirupcoming LP "SHELTERS". The name of the track was inspired by the way James Brown used to fine his live band anytime they made a mistake on stage. The album, due April 12th via Rude Records in partnership with Equal Vision Records, was produced by the band along with Chris Koltay (War on Drugs, Kurt Vile, Deerhunter).
On the track, guitarist Scott Iulianelli shares: "'Atlantic City' is an unsuspecting pop song made up of seemingly disjointed parts; musically it's our version of Beefheart's 'Frownland'. Lyrically, it's about temptation and commitment, a homage to Springsteen. There's also this weird circular percussion happening that sets the tone for the song and gives the guitars and vocals a platform for weaving in and out of. Like I said, it shouldn't be a pop song, but somehow it still is".
Six years since their highly lauded Wheels LP Bars of Gold are never one to rush a good thing and it’s apparent in the carefully considered music within the tracks of Shelters, an album that/s fortified in friendship and family and borders on musical telepathy. Check the video for the first single off the record, “Sometimes”. Directed by Tony Wolski / FORMER CO (Converge, The Armed, Protomartyr, etc..) the video is stages of anxiety personified with cameos from the band throughout.
