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.
Throes is available on 3 gorgeous vinyl variants, Blue w/black swirl (ltd to 150), Purple w/pink swirl (ltd to 100), and standard 150g black (ltd to 50). The albums include a printed inner sleeve and are packaged in a reusable gold stamped blue tint poly bag.
