Based between Brussels and Berlin, GOLDEN HOURS is comprised of past and present members of Gang Of Four, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Tricky, The Fuzztones and The Third Sound, to name just a few. A band with mileage and stories, they trade in rock’n’roll missives that are at times dark, tense and hypnotic, at others sweaty, relentless and danceable. Made up of Hákon Adalsteinsson (Guitar/Vocals), Rodrigo Fuentealba Palavacino (Guitar), Tobias Humble (Drums/Vocals) and Wim Janssens (Bass/Keys/Vocals), Golden Hours’ self-titled debut album is due for release March 31st 2023 on Fuzz Club Records.

Wim says of the project and its incoming debut: “The musical backgrounds of each member are pretty broad but somehow when we come together there’s a pretty clear definition of what our music should sound like. There’s a beautiful friction between the noise we produce and the love for melody that seems to overtake at just the right moment. There never seems to be a lack of ideas when we come together. In silent agreement, every idea gets tried and will be further developed into a song or skipped in a heartbeat. No time is wasted. It all happens pretty automatically.”

On the shadowy and macabre lead single, ‘Come And Find Me’, Wim writes: “A relentless bass brings back the ghost of The Birthday Party, drums keep a violent pace and urgently push forward. Guitars open up like a vortex and suck the air out of the room, while the singer urges you to come and join him in his deathbed. These are Sunday afternoon vibes in hell. A hit on any devil-worshipping radio station.”

Mersey Skys auf Facebook

Loud & Quiet “an expanded sound palette and grander production, more focussed songwriting, and greater risk-taking in composition and arrangement”

Line Of Best Fit „a compelling record that is as confident in its shiny, polished singles as in its crepuscular oddities”

God Is In The TV “leads you down a well through the dark into the light, simmering with clipped guitars and urgent drum strikes”

Clash “a document of luxurious darkness”

The New Cue “mesmeric dream pop with a MBV-style guitar churn that appears to get bigger, louder and more sky-scraping as the seconds progress…”
