GOLD FIELDS
GOLD FIELDS
Just shy of a year into their career, Gold Fields were already taking their recordings from their bedrooms to Britain. That was only a few weeks after playing a gig to a packed-out crowd at Melbourne’s Ding Dong Lounge in October last year, which marked three months into their musical union.

Originally writing dark, country-tinged songs, the band were becoming depressed by their own music, so they changed direction and wrote Treehouse – a glossy slice of pop etched with tribal drums. Creating a hypnotic blend of enigmatic, brooding undercurrents borrowed from rock, the band’s songs tend to lean towards experimental, spooky and dramatic pop with ominous bass lines and punchy drums.

In less than a year, the band was well on their way to fulfilling their dreams, as well as attracting interest from London label Young and Lost Club, who released Treehouse, prompting the band to fly over to the UK to play some shows. Support slots for Crystal Castles, The Holidays and Datarock, as well as performing at Falls Festival, Field Day and Groovin The Moo soon followed.
ELECTRIC YOUTH (DJ set)
ELECTRIC YOUTH (DJ set)
Electric Youth's Austin Garrick and Bronwyn Griffin, middle school sweethearts turned synth duo, churn out 80's inspired, electro-pop melodies and dreamy ballads that capture the moment the mallrat went supernova and became America's sweetheart. The Toronto natives penned the infectious track "A Real Hero," the central theme song for the Ryan Gosling landmark film Drive, which became the movies unofficial anthem and propelled the soundtrack to become one of the best of the year. The soundtrack has reached the top-5 albums on iTunes and "A Real Hero" is the best selling single download from the score, having charted the top 10 iTunes Dance Charts in the U.S. and other countries overseas. Now a 5-piece touring act, Electric Youth are completing their debut album along with a music video fo their next single, "The Best Thing." Edging from the realm of dark cult films closer to the brink of pop music notoriety. Electric Youth's dreamy bedroom sound is the dark, dreamy direction that today's popular music is headed. A Full-length of their energetic pop escapades will be available this year, reviving restless hearts everywhere.
