Now Hear This: Goldminds | Signals

I'm getting caught up on the good albums that have come out lately. Like this one.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “A powerhouse of energy, channelling the grit and sweat of ’70s punk rock, Goldminds is a meeting of experience and exposure. The quartet from Melbourne, Australia have released their debut album Signals.

A four-piece shooting straight from the hip, Goldminds waste no time in conjuring their own breed of formidable chaos. Drawing power from her femme consciousness, singer Courtney Constantinou is unapologetic, lawless and commanding, delivering her message with finesse and fury. Born not with a silver spoon in their mouth but a hot knife in their hand, Goldminds have been ‘kicking up the dirt’ from floors in living rooms, dive bars and iconic music venues across the city since 2019. With the arrival of COVID-19 stopping the rock ’n’ roll industry in its tracks, the band have been circling their cages like hungry lions waiting for their next meal.

The bite of blistering guitars, monstrous grooves and gunfire rhythms lay the foundation for mammoth live shows that grip the attention of audiences. The band’s first offering is their debut album Signals, and it is as raw and authentic as they come. Recorded in the back alleys of St Kilda at Hothouse Studios with Jez Giddings and renowned producer Michael Badger (King Gizzard, Amyl & The Sniffers), the album packs a punch as it offers a taste of what can be experienced live.”
