OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
NEWS PROVIDED BY
The Gold Supply are a new, science-fiction, space-zombie-in-a-coma, Nordic-noir, UK-based band that formed amongst the turmoil of the global pandemic and world chaos.
The EP exhibits a beautiful, atmospheric and almost post-apocalyptic ambience- a combination of sounds and influences that would suggest that not only do The Gold Supply know how and when the world will end, but that they’re poised and ready to provide the soundtrack.
The trio represent this ‘new norm’ within their craft by creating dream-like, and ambient music. Something that reflects the unworldly experience we have all encountered - as well as a sense of melancholy throughout the themes of each track. The disordered but creative flow of The Gold Supply’s forthcoming project, symbolises the rut and confusion within someone's mind during extremely hard times.
‘Open Lines’ is made up of five tracks, ‘Let it Go’, ‘No Addictions’, ‘Never The Same’ ‘Something Like You’ and ‘Our Last Few Days’ - which all tap into a hardened sense of reality, surrounding topics that you may be too afraid to speak out out. The Gold Supply cover affairs surrounding death, addiction, loss of love and friendship. The EP is hard hitting, but it is extremely real and inspiring.
Vocalist Kevin revealed this about No Addictions. “The song is a meditation on the nature of addiction. Even darker than the addiction is the denial of the addiction - it’s the denial that causes the biggest problems. Most people have either a personal experience of this situation or experience through a friend or relative.
“There is no fairy-tale ending to No Addictions, no suggested answers, or cures for today’s issues. Just the reality. Lena is brilliant at making small changes to songs that have a big impact and that little spoken-word Polish section gives me goosebumps every time.”
The band gets intensely personal on Something Like You. They disclose, “It isn’t a cover of the famous song by Adele. This song isn’t about someone else, it’s about yourself, asking if you are happy with yourself, would you choose to be your friend, or would you be in a relationship with someone like you?”
Kevin continues, “Our Last Few Days was always going to be the last song on the EP. The schoolyard game where you talk about what you’d do if the world was going to end usually involved talk of having a massive pool party in Costa Rica with all the cool kids in the year above you, or maybe going on a road trip to smoke the best drugs on the planet.”
