Gold Spectacles – Felines
Felines is the latest offering from UK-based baroque-pop duo Gold Spectacles. Written, recorded and self produced in their modest South London studio, the track features a prominent bassline, plucky guitars and a beaten up mellotron, whilst honing in on the darkside of modern life… loans, social debts and raw deals. “The idea behind Felines is a nod to the tale of Robert Johnson falling to his knees on the crossroads, looking for an exit and in desperation, making a deal with a stranger that will change his life forever. Greatness in exchange for a great debt. These days, we’ve all felt part of the machine; as if we’re doing all the labour to save fat cats in high places lifting a finger. Safe to say, if we were given the same contract, same terms, on those same crossroads, we’d probably sign it. Whatever the cost.” A raw, honest, highly relatable and infectious track with stunning vocals – apt for the present time!
