Say Psych: Track Review: Golden Hours – Come and Find Me

Based between Berlin and Brussels, Golden Hours is comprised of past and present members of Gang Of Four, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Tricky, The Fuzztones and The Third Sound, to name just a few. A band with mileage and stories, Golden Hours trade in rock’n’roll missives that are at times dark, tense and hypnotic, at others sweaty, relentless and danceable. Their debut single ‘Come And Find Me’ is out now and their self-titled debut album will be released on Fuzz Club on 31 March 2023.

Describing the shadowy and macabre ‘Come And Find Me’ – which officially introduces the world to the band following a live debut at the 2021 Desertfest in Ghent – Wim Janssens (Bass, Keys, Vocals) writes: “On ‘Come And Find Me’ a relentless bass brings back the ghost of The Birthday Party, drums keep a violent pace and urgently push forward like a nihilistic colossus, holding a burning torch, looking for a place to sleep. Guitars open up like a vortex and suck the air out of the room, while the singer urges you to come and join him in his deathbed. These are Sunday afternoon vibes in hell. A hit on any devil-worshipping radio station.”

Joined by Hákon Adalsteinsson (Guitar/Vocals), Rodrigo Fuentealba Palavacino (Guitar) and Tobias Humble (Drums/Vocals), Wim says of the project and its incoming debut: “The musical backgrounds of each member are pretty broad but somehow when we come together there’s a pretty clear definition of what our music should sound like. There’s a beautiful friction between the noise we produce and the love for melody that seems to overtake at just the right moment. There never seems to be a lack of ideas when we come together. In silent agreement, every idea gets tried and will be further developed into a song or skipped in a heartbeat. No time is wasted. It all happens pretty automatically.”

Golden Hours came to exist after a chance encounter in 2021 between Tobias and Rodrigo whilst they were both in Athens, Greece playing the same clubs and festivals that week – Rodrigo with The Fuzztones, Tobias with Gang Of Four. Tobias recalls: “Rodrigo and I met first in the back of a van, careering into Athens, the two of us hungover and sweating, distracting ourselves from the perilous journey by barking names of EBM and post-punk influences at each other as our fellow passengers did their best efforts to keep the driver from turning our ride into a Greek tragedy for the ages.” By the time the shuttle bus had pulled into their hotel to the tune of screeching tires and relieved passengers, the Golden Hours were formed. 

‘Come and Find Me’ is sultry and invocative, constant and yet ever evolving. It’s the type of track that doesn’t come along often, but when it does it leaves everything around it for dead.
