Download: The Gold Standard – Riding a Wave

Cork’s The Gold Standard look like a somewhat gloomy four-piece in their bandcamp header. Luckily for us though, the music they make is sparkly alt-pop, with beautiful harmonies. They’ve just supported Ham Sandwich (who would be similar soundwise), and are busy working on their first album.

Just to tease us though, the band have released a free double A-side through bandcamp. ‘Riding a Wave’ has a wonderful chorus with soothing verses, while ‘You People’ is a riff-laden pop-rocker.

They’ve also got a date in the next few weeks:
March 25th @ The Sweeney Mongrel, Dame St., Dublin – w/ Zealots & Swords
