The Gold Setting Turns Fate Into A Groovy Love Anthem
If youâ€™ve missed Amy Winehouse and still listen to her â€œBack to Blackâ€ album on repeat, then The Gold Setting will be your next obsession.
Taking retro-futuristic rock, doo-wop jazzy vocals, a whole lotta girl group sass and melding it all together in a delicious amalgamation, comes The Gold Settingâ€™s first single, â€œBeing Without You.â€
Lead singer Liza Colbyâ€™s voice is undoubtedly a magical embodiment of Amy Winehouse, with a dash of Sharon Jones and The Dap-kings, with a hint of Lana Del Rey â€” a sound that oozes slow sensual grooves, and even a sax that makes you wanna download George Michaelâ€™s â€œCareless Whisperâ€ and watch â€œDirty Dancing.â€
The soon-to-be-released EP, â€œVolume and Toneâ€, was written during what was intended to be a quick trip to Los Angeles and ended up turning into a two week studio session. Of this serendipitous trip, Liza tells us, â€œyou have to be prepared for luck or luck has no real value. Technique and craft are paramount. You have to do the work. It’s the only way to position for serendipity. The best songs come out of good and bad times. You never know what the muse will be.â€
This groovy EP wonâ€™t be out until April, but you can listen to â€œBeing with You,â€ on repeat while you stare at the ceiling and dreamily imagine being in love. Liza tells us that, even though the trip was kinda random, â€œSongs ARE a mystical thing. The setting was different when I wrote “Being Without You”, writing that song was by no means an accident.â€
Check out the song below, listen, and repeat.
