Gwilym Gold has gone through a hell of a transformation since his time as Golden Silvers’ frontman and his songwriting has evolved far beyond the doo-wop synth pop vibes. 2012’s Tender Metal was a welcomed introduction to the songwriter’s strange new world of scintillating experimentalism dominated by an ever-changing musical landscape. In his latest effort, he remains a forward thinking figure, with the knack of creating warm ballads within stark, metallic atmospheres. Unknown is a rumbling, slow builder, Truimphs’ fluttering beats are relentless, but the intersecting vocals and piano chords are lively, sweeping statements of euphoria. Where Gold succeeds in A Paradise is in his ability to make his aurally off-kilter artworks into enjoyable and thoughtful forays into electronic post-pop.
