Drum is the bold second album from Gold Class. Recorded at Melbourne’s Head Gap studios / Tropical Fuck Storm Studios and co-produced by Gareth Liddiard of The Drones, Drum sees Gold Class explore new territory in both songwriting and sonics.
Commenting on the album title, Adam Curley (lead singer) says “Drum is primitive. It’s physical. It’s the beat of your heart. It’s immediate. It comes from the past, but it also beckons to something in the future.” It holds other dualities, too – submission and authority; repetition and propulsion. And yet at its core, it’s just something you can dance to.
The follow-up to 2015 debut It’s You, Drum is a brasher, vivid widescreen account of a band hitting its stride while betraying the complex signs and scars of a life since lived.
