GOLD KEY Drop New Single ‘Mechanical World’

We turn to a new page as Gold Key release their latest single Mechanical World.

The Watford quartet Gold Key embark on a new chapter, taking on a more kaleidoscopic sound in their newest single Mechanical World.

Glimmers of high notes pierce through a hazy texture of fuzzing guitars and a rumbling bass. Vocalist Steve Sears switches back and forth between effortless clean tones and more explosive gritty tones, maintaining the high emotional intensity of the track. The searing chorus will throb through the speakers; Sears’ powerful vocals perforate a massive sound of chromatic fuzzing guitars and crushing drums to create an arena-worthy chorus, and you’ll be singing along and banging your head in no times.

Steve Sears explains the lyricism of the track, saying:

It’s a song about feeling suffocated by the world, not being able to shut off from the technology we simultaneously rely on. It’s easy to moan about the evils of social media whilst being totally addicted to it. Nearly all of us have created our own artificial world – an alternate reality where we constantly look successful and happy through the photos we have chosen to share with the world.

The band are set to join Black Peaks on tour this October.
