Released 17th January 2020
Written on a Mt Maunganui sunrise while on tour in New Zealand, “Golden” sees Blue Child Collective exploring new sounds, blending elements of indie folk and roots to produce a track in a similar vein to “Crosses” by Jose Gonzalez and Bon Iver’s smash hit “Holocene”, yet featuring a solid percussion bed, baritone vocals and clever group singalong “Harmony with everything // Harmony, we all can sing in (rpt)”.
The single will be accompanied by a music video shot on Super 8 film due to drop in February, and will see the group back across to New Zealand for a run of headline shows and festivals following the WA launches.
Released January 17th, the track is a quick follow up to the group’s third documentary, titled “The Art Of Sound” released November 2019, and paves the way for the release of two more singles and their fifth studio album later this year.
