Golden Streets of Paradise

Rising from the ashes of Brandtson, Cleveland's Golden Streets of Paradise expand on their previous band's sound with a darker, more sonically diverse vibe.

In the blackest night, alone, overboard and floating at sea. Throes offers not a life raft but a wary catalog of what lies ahead. A map of suffering at the hands of the sea.

Throes takes the goth-tinged aesthetic that Golden Streets of Paradise have established with prior releases and wraps it with an anxious new urgency. Subtle hooks touch a grey washed sadness while hints of influence from The Police, Skinny Puppy and Sade help inform the bands most unrestrained work yet. Recorded and self-produced throughout the last year and a half. Avoiding excessive digital processing in favor of organic sounds, live synths, and un-eq’d drums to craft an incredible new collection of songs. Throes presents the listener with a snapshot of a universally relatable sorrow, one honed in isolation, loss and fear.

The gravity of these songs is immediately tangible on album opener and lead single Heavy Hands. A short melody of haunted minor chords, stark and alone for only a moment before the rest of the album crashes in like the angry waves of a shallow lake.


On World War, the duo finds a comfortable balance between head-nodding rock and vampiric brooding. World War, their debut full-length album is driven both by the warm fuzz-forward push of Myk Porter’s guitar and his huge vocal performance. Drummer / programmer Adam Boose fills in the gaps with touches of synths and electronic tinkering, giving a subtle nod to the band’s industrial influences.

World War was mixed by Grammy Award-winning engineer Rae DiLeo (Filter/Henry Rollins), who artfully highlights Golden Streets’ pop sensibilities and massive hooks.

"World War is a kickass debut heightened by Boose's inspired programming, Porter's commanding vocals and the duo's overarching sense of dynamics. GSOP look like Cleveland's next great gift to the world"
