Gold Minor is one of those bands that makes you wonder exactly what era they hail from. Their sound is certainly haunted by the ghost of classic rock past, but there is enough of a contemporary shine added to avoid the pitfall of sounding like dinosaurs. The soulful and atmospheric “The Calling” channels the anthem-based, later-day work of Kings of Leon, and the gritty “The Right Time” recalls the grungier side of the Black Crowes. Ballad “Kiss The Night” is a definite shout-out to ’70s hard rock glory with its scintillating guitar solo and unabashedly huge chorus. Get ready to raise your lighters in the air for this one.
The band purposefully aims big with every track off their soon to be released debut LP Bone Flowers. Each song is seemingly built to fill an arena with stirring vocals, lushly layered guitars and booming drums. The album release show is set for April 10 at the Brick & Mortar and you can check out the lead single now.
