Gold Class

GOLD CLASS’S 2015 DEBUT ALBUM, IT’S YOU, WAS SOMETHING OF AN UNDERGROUND SLEEPER, SEEING THE BAND SHORT-LISTED FOR THE AUSTRALIAN MUSIC PRIZE AND SENDING THEM OFF TO TOUR THE USA AND EUROPE. BARELY DRESSED RECORDS BEGAN WORKING WITH GOLD CLASS IN 2017 – TO RELEASE THEIR INCREDIBLE SECOND ALBUM DRUM.


 
 

Twist In The Dark (2017)

GOLD CLASS’S SINGLE TWIST IN THE DARK IS A POTENT MIX OF PUNK GRANDIOSITY AND RECKLESS ABANDON, PRODUCED BY THE DRONE’S GARETH LIDDIARD. IT IS RELEASED AS A LIMITED EDITION 12” SINGLE WITH A REMIX BY GENRE-DESTROYING ELECTRO-VISUAL DUO FRIENDSHIPS. RARELY HAS PUNK MUSIC BEEN SO DANCEABLE; POUNDING TOMS AND BASS THAT OPEN INTO A CHURNING GUITAR MELODY AND ADAM CURLEY’S BOOMING AND RHYTHMIC VOICE. IT CERTAINLY REPRESENTS A GIANT LEAP FORWARD FROM THE BAND’S PREVIOUS WORK IN TERMS OF SOPHISTICATION, SONIC CLARITY AND HOOK AFTER HOOK AFTER HOOK.

 
 
 

 

DRUM (2017)

DRUM IS THE BOLD FOLLOW-UP TO THE SLOW-BURNING CULT-SUCCESS OF GOLD CLASS’S 2015 DEBUT IT’S YOU. A VIVID WIDESCREEN ACCOUNT OF A BAND HITTING ITS STRIDE; AN URGENT, DEFIANT AND BEAUTIFUL DOCUMENT FROM THE BAND. PRODUCED BY GARETH LIDDIARD (THE DRONES) DRUM WAS UNANIMOUSLY PRAISED AS ONE OF 2017’S BEST PUNK-ROCK RECORDS.

"DARKLY ECSTATIC MUSIC THAT SOUNDS BOTH DEFIANT AND SPIRITED.” - THE MUSIC ★★★★

"...A LANDMARK MOMENT IN AUSTRALIAN PUNK'N'ROLL." - HERALD SUN ★★★★

"A BRASH AND INCANDESCENT AUSTRALIAN ROCK ALBUM, WITH A VULNERABILITY AND HONESTY THAT IS WORTHY OF DEEP ADMIRATION AND REPEATED LISTENS." – FBI RADIO
