Vancouver band Gold and Youth highlight the power of love on groovy number “Blush,” from their second record Dream Baby. Made up of lush pianos and a slow beat with hushed vocals, the track weaves a vibrant sonic world exploring how love offers us a purpose in life and how we can get through the biggest adversities of life as long as we have each other.
The hazy offering which leans into the band’s trademark sound nestled between alt-pop and art-rock, with a tinge of quiet bedroom sensibilities, channels cynicism before flipping the narrative into something far more uplifting with its sharply observational yet witty lyrics.
With an anthemic, shoe-hazy flair built on atmospheric synths and subtle ambient arrangements, “Blush,” gives us a glimpse of Gold and Youth’s liberating artistry, delicately balancing freedom and ambition with anxious tension for a sprawling, gently lulling instrumental that brings hope to the forefront.
A fulfilling glance of the comfort and contemplation they offer on their sophomore record, the warmth and earworm quality of this latest foray captivates us.
