Hear Solid Gold’s Lonesome Electro-Pop Cut ‘The Pendulum’

Solid Gold

Solid Gold is Zach Coulter, Adam Hurlburt and Matthew Locher, a synth-pop threesome who met in a University of Wisconsin architecture class, only to link up with Gayngs bandmate, founder, ringleader and known Twin Cities troublemaker, Ryan Olson, after the release of their 2008 debut Bodies of Water began to generate local buzz. Olson has stepped up now to release their forthcoming Eat Your Young LP via his label Totally Gross National Product, an album set to include the post-indie electro haze of “The Pendulum,” a song whose hyper-real sincerity yields the perfect balance of cold wave, new wave and pop: it’s spacious, it’s lonely, and above all else, it’s infectious. Check it out below.
