New Music: Gold Class


Post-punk Melbournites made up of Evan James Purdey (guitar), Jon Shub (bass), Adam Curley (vocals) & Logan Gibson (drums).

The Sound?

In a world where anyone can write and record an album on a laptop on their own in their bedroom, and Pro Tools can be used to make the worst singer in the world sound like they’re Elvis, it’s become almost novel for a band to go down the simple route of just getting together in a room, plugging in and seeing what happens. This is where Melbourne’s Gold Class step in; four human beings, plugging in their instruments and going for it. For fans of Joy Division, Interpol and The Smiths

The Story?

In the autumn of 2015, the band headed to Melbourne’s Head Gap studio and recorded ten songs to tape in just four days.  The result of which is the very impressive debut album It’s You. The lead single from the record, “Life As A gun” is a hard-hitting angst-filled track with sharp poignant lyrics. Take a listen for yourself below.

Essential Tracks…

“Life As A Gun” is a perfect entry point into the world of Gold Class from their debut album It’s You. brutally sharp and melancholic. 

Where can I see them live?
