SIGN TO UNFD
RELEASE A HUGE NEW SINGLE
Suffolk-via-Essex quartet, Tropic Gold have announced their signing to UNFD with a huge new single, Adrenaline. The track was exclusively premiered on Monday night’s BBC Radio 1 Rock Show, with sit-in host and long-term supporter, Alyx Holcombe, enthusing, “that was so incredible!”
“Adrenaline unravels the uncontrollable feeling of not being able to get through a day without an unreasonably positive event occurring,” share the band. “It vocalises how having a day without an extreme positive lift can result in intense lows, similar to withdrawal symptoms. The lyrics are written from a “talking to myself” perspective, with vocals representing an inner monologue highlighted throughout the song.”
“The excitement of signing with UNFD is undeniably life changing,” they continue. “We are beyond grateful for the shared enthusiasm UNFD have in the future of Tropic Gold, and are not holding back on making the most of what this partnership can create. The shared ambition for bringing the vision of Tropic Gold to life has allowed us to expand our team for the first time, and UNFD have made us feel lovingly welcomed and part of a family immediately. We can’t wait to invite the world to join the experience.”
Tropic Gold offer up a sleekly modern meld of alternative, metal, pop, and electronica, cajoling their passions for a dynamic culture pool of music and production styles into a single sonic petri dish.
Though originally formed in 2019, the quartet have spent years in the lab, developing their sound and strong aesthetics behind the closed doors of a bespoke, self-built multimedia studio.
The Tropic Gold method is truly hands on, with guitarist Joshua Lee handling all production and recording duties, as well as diving into the weeds on their visual curation, manning the camera and edit suite as often as the production chair.
Today, with their vision firmly in grasp, the band are ready to move beyond the prologue, and have struck up a partnership with UNFD to bring their soaring, infectious soundscapes to a global audience.
Pairing swathes of moody atmospherics with soaring, ear worm choruses, the band’s songs feel like they would be equally A Vibe™ pulsing across sticky, cramped dance floors as soaring atop airy arenas.
Coming on like a new romantic Bring Me The Horizon or a post breakup Don Broco who just discovered their parents copy of The Cure’s Disintegration or a 45rpm copy of Sing The Sorrow playing at 33rpm… tl;dr: Tropic Gold are as gloomy as they are catchy.
Sharing a sonic space with the likes of the aforementioned BMTH and Broco, PVRIS, (latter day) Architects, Caskets, Spiritbox’s plaintive moments and even Enter Shikari (albeit on Valium), Tropic Gold are just getting started in figuring out how to weaponise their cocktail of slap and swag.
