Throughout the years that we've hosted The Launch Pad CMJ showcases, we've booked quite a few rising groups and artists. Typically, those who you would expect to impress do so, and every so often, an unfamiliar name rises to the level of their better known associates. Last October, however, one of these unrenowned foreigners stole the stage. One of Australia's latest synth-pop experiments to arrive in the U.S., Gold Fields, turned out the lights and turned up the bass for one of the most captivating, and down-right awesome shows of the entire weekend. With an explosive percussive duo luring you in, you're hooked by the gripping melody and cooling harmonization. It's good and it's loud.
Today, we're providing a sample-sized portion of the full concert, which will be released tomorrow afternoon. Crank up the volume and watch "Dark Again" below.
