For their self titled debut album LA collective Fools Gold were inspired everything from Eritrean pop, Ethiopean Soul and Tropicalia to the Smiths and Adam Ant. The live shows were incredibly energetic (how many bands have you seen that make the audience leap up from the floor?) and their videos were consistently hilarious. Remember ‘Surprise Hotel’?
And it sounds like they’re not changing tact on this new track. While ‘Street Clothes’ displays a little more of their love for out-and-out rocking, there’s still a lot of WOAHHHing and plenty of intriguing squelches and thumps. As frontman Luke Top sings “there’s no holding back”.
