There seems to be a lot of songs lately with “Gold” in the title but they all seem to be pretty catchy. SIR SLY is the latest to join this trend with the release of their newest track aptly titled “Gold”. The mysterious group caused a stir online last year with the release of two tracks, “Ghosts” and “Found You Out”, with a minimal amount of personal information describing who they are or where they are from. Their modest online presence caused a lot of frenetic speculation among music writers and fans but in the end, the music needs to warrant the hype to matter which it does in this case.
“Gold” has a little different feel than their previous releases but it still has the same “sly-fi” flavor. The lyrics are stern and are delivered with a subtle power that allows you to conjure up any image your mind pushes you towards. The mark of a good tune is when you get lost in the music, putting yourself inside that small place in time feeling your own waves of emotions as if nothing else matters at all. SIR SLY and their new track “Gold” took me there. Enough said!
