“Alone. Together. provides a bit of a different spin on all the isolation-born records we’ve heard so far in the past few months. Instead of dwindling on the negatives, it instead almost-romanticises it in a way, pairing some incredibly sweet vocals with a gentle collection of rhythms and harmonies” – PILERATS
“Golding encouraging you to loosen the shackles for a night with this very slinky good time.” – Dave Ruby Howe (triple j)
Australian Indie-Electronic duo, Golding, have released their sophomore single ‘Alone.Together.’ – a paradoxical isolation anthem highlighting the blissful side of being locked down with loved ones.
The track came together serendipitously when vocalist Jay Bainbridge was singing off the cuff to his wife during a boozy night in lock down. “It was in a moment with my wife, we were just having fun and enjoying each other in a really normal and natural way. It was weird though because whilst I was fully in the moment with her, I was also able to be outside the moment and realise how relatable and real this same situation must be for so many other people.”
Instantly recognising the track’s potential, Jay rushed to his phone to record the hook. Golding’s other half, Matt Bartlem (previously produced for the likes of Matt Corby, Boo Seeka & Jarryd James), brought the vision to life with his signature production.
With a meticulosity composed sound that draws inspiration from artists such as Alt-J & Phoenix, the duo specialise in dreamy indie-dance that pays homage to the old-school with a subtle nod to a new era.
