The Canadian guys formerly known as Gobble Gobble, now known as Born Gold, are releasing their debut LP September 20th on the band's imprint, Hovercraft, and Crash Symbols, a label brought to you by the folks from Get Off The Coast. Packed with a flurry of noisy fun, the debut track under the new name, “Alabaster Bodyworlds” is a pool party in the midst of a hurricane, confetti and lawn chairs dancing in the wind to future-heavy electro beats, only slowing down for breaths on the catchy chorus.
Frontman Cecil Frena relflects upon Born Gold's current state of mind: "We have been slowly coaxing this caterpillar into a butterfly with our fists. Check it out, girl-- a new face to fit both our past to date and the futuresex we are slowly growing into. Stand before a mirror, hold your palm over your right eye, and repeat Born Gold six times." Bumps, bruises, broken furniture, and sweaty brows: these are the things that wild synth-pop is made of. --Yours Truly
