Back in mid-July, we featured a song from Seattle dream pop darlings Golden Gardens called “Extrasolar Heartbeat” from their much anticipated brand new album Reign. That same awesome band will be playing that number and many others at their album release show set for October 20 at the High Dive.
The 9-song LP produced by Martin Feveyear officially drops on 10/21 but they’ll have copies available for sale at this show, so go get yours a day early and listen to the whole thing live.
What we said about “Extrasolar Heartbeat” back in July:
A track whose sonic palette is large driven by synthesizers and electric guitar, “Extrasolar Heartbeat” is among the more dense and woozy tracks Golden Gardens have released. While the track is atmospheric and intoxicating, it doesn’t overplay the digital effects and ethereal production as to forget to actually include a song with the dream-like sounds. The vocals from Aubrey Bramble are bold and upfront in the mix, and the plinky synth melodies give the song a more playful edge.
“Extrasolar Heartbeat” was produced by Martin Feveyear, most notable for his production work on albums by Mark Lanegan, Duff McKagan’s Loaded, Mudhoney, and many more, and with him behind the engineering wheel, you can look forward to a lot of crisp, tight-sounding tracks on Reign. It’s certainly an album to look out for as we get closer to the end of the year.
