TROPIC GOLD RELEASE
‘MANIAC’ TAKEN FROM
NEW EP ‘WHAT A WONDERFUL
EXPERIENCE’ OUT NOW
Suffolk-via-Essex quartet, Tropic Gold who have just released their What A Wonderful Experience EP, have also released a powerful new single, Maniac.
Maniac follows recent singles, ADRENALINE and DTTTH, and shines a light on “a generation of undiagnosed and mistreated mental health conditions,” share the band. “The song lays out how people often think they’re going insane and that they’re not normal. There’s a constant struggle people live with, not knowing why they feel differently to others, and Maniac talks about the attempt to find the alternate inner version of yourself that feels hopeless.”
Of What A Wonderful Experience, the band explain that the title “can be interpreted in so many ways; it’s our most cohesive release yet and we’re eager to see how people relate to the songs in different, individual ways.”
Tropic Gold offer up a sleekly modern meld of alternative, metal, pop, and electronica, cajoling their passions for a dynamic culture pool of music and production styles into a single sonic petri dish.
Though originally formed in 2019, the quartet have spent years in the lab, developing their sound and strong aesthetics behind the closed doors of a bespoke, self-built multimedia studio.
The Tropic Gold method is truly hands on, with guitarist Joshua Lee handling all production and recording duties, as well as diving into the weeds on their visual curation, manning the camera and edit suite as often as the production chair.
With their vision firmly in grasp, the band are ready to move beyond the prologue, and have struck up a partnership with UNFD to bring their soaring, infectious soundscapes to a global audience.
Pairing swathes of moody atmospherics with soaring, ear worm choruses, the band’s songs feel like they would be equally A Vibe™ pulsing across sticky, cramped dance floors as soaring atop airy arenas.
Coming on like a new romantic Bring Me The Horizon or a post breakup Don Broco who just discovered their parents copy of The Cure’s Disintegration or a 45rpm copy of Sing The Sorrow playing at 33rpm… tl;dr: Tropic Gold are as gloomy as they are catchy.
Sharing a sonic space with the likes of the aforementioned BMTH and Broco, PVRIS, (latter day) Architects, Caskets, Spiritbox’s plaintive moments and even Enter Shikari (albeit on Valium), Tropic Gold are just getting started in figuring out how to weaponise their cocktail of slap and swag.
