There’s nothing quite like a slick disco groove to get down to, and London duo Gold Fir (mysteriously known only as James and Mabel) have nailed it with their first offering, “Night Walk”. Inspired by their favourite places, friends, and films, their sound is packed with simple, absolutely magical layering. The pair reflect on it as something that “can be fun, funky, sassy, serious, sad and amusing… It’s about trying to be bold and to enjoy the writing process as much as possible.”
It’s a sentiment that shines through on “Night Walk”, which is a confident introduction to the duo’s sonic control. Pulsating with pure energy, the cut sees slinky bass interact with glimmering synths, while funky 808 percussion and a soulful vocal melody dance around each other.
