Gwilym Gold - A Paradise
Gwilym Gold releases his second album 'A Paradise' on Brille. The inimitable songwriter and composer's new album features collaborations with Hyetal, Darkstar, Bullion, and Nico Muhly. Gold has been consistently impressing us over the years: first as bandleader of art pop group Golden Silvers, then with his 2013 album 'Tender Metal' (which was released via constantly-evolving music format Bronze), and later with collaborations with artists like Hyetal and, more recently, Darkstar. Hyetal and Darkstar's James Young both appear as co-producers on tracks from 'A Paradise', as does leftfield pop producer Bullion. Meanwhile, four songs feature string arrangements by contemporary classical composer Nico Muhly. Otherwise, the majority of the album was composed by Gwilym alone at home with his piano before being taken to regular collaborator Lexxx for co-production at London's Konk Studios.
