Old Gold - The Candle Still Burns
There isn’t time to get yourself situated before “The Candle Still Burns” kicks in. From the very first moment, this track slaps you in the face and says, “Yo, I’m here, bitch!” Initially, it comes off as a bit jarring, but by the third listen or so you’ll just want to keep restarting the track. Just to recapture that immediate rush.
In regards to sound, Old Gold seems to have dived deeper into the 1980s. He’s touched upon the territory on his D.O.G. EP and previous singles, but his latest work could easily appear in a montage full of leg warmers and neon-colored head bands. Three words: Work. It. Out.
