This is the classic story of a dog chasing a cat, though it turns the convention on its tail, so to speak.
I’m not crying you’re crying shut up
Australian synthpop band Gold Fields’ latest, Hold Me, has indeed held on to me ever since I first heard it yesterday morning. It’s a tune I would’ve featured far earlier if I had the time. I’ve bee digging Gold Fields’ lush music for quite some time now, having greatly enjoyed their debut album Black Sun back in early 2013. But I must say, Hold Me might be my favorite Gold Fields song to date, with its luscious plushness and a wonderful, well balanced blend of nu-disco goodness, house groove, and dark electronic production. I even hear some of that tropical sound of the moment in the song. How did they get it all packed into one sumptuous treat? It’s Gold Fields’ first original track in awhile, having given us some superb remixes in the interim, and what a return it is.
