Song of the Day - Stay Gold

The Big Pink - Stay Gold
Album: Future This (2012)

I like The Big Pink. Their debut album, A Brief History of Love, was chock full of dang good tracks and was the perfect compliment for those chilled out Sundays all the way back in 2009. Such a long time ago. I think of those days now and again, when the sun shone brightly on my face and the world was something of an oyster to me. But I digress (and need to stop watching British period dramas)... that album was all kinds of awesome. Anyway, I was quite surprised to see that this electronic duo had released a new single to very little fanfare. What's up with that? 'Stay Gold' doesn't deviate much from the winning formula The Big Pink came up with for their debut, but there's nothing wrong with that. Comparisons to The Naked and Famous are certain to follow but you know what... these guys came first so you can take those comparisons and stick them where the sun don't shine. But don't do that. Just enjoy this song!

Rating: 4/5
