-Music Videos on my Mind- Gold Class' "The Soft Delay"

You must realise that you’re on to a winning campaign when a band from Melbourne, Australia forms in 2014, only creates a handful of songs but still manages to draw big crowds to its live shows, gets snapped up by Aussie indie powerhouse label Spunk Records, and is now getting its singles spun in international territories.

Gold Class may come from Down Under but their post-punk sound sounds like it’s stumbled out of a dingy underground venue in Manchester, England circa 1981. Lead singer Adam Curtley is majorly indebted to the aching baritones of late Joy Division frontman Ian Curtis; in fact everything about Gold Class echoes the wounded tempos of the aforementioned Manchester band.

Dour yet essential, The Soft Delay taken from Gold Class’ new album It’s You, however, is a cracking indie track that reinforces why the band is being lauded so prevalently.
