San Diego’s favorite purveyors of ominously sweet folk, Golden Red, are adding a touch of black to their palette. The band is set to drop their debut EP, titled Sad Loud Black Sound, later this week. To celebrate the release, the quintet will be playing a show at the Soda Bar this Friday, June 12, alongside fellow rustic acts River City and Silverleaf.
The five-song EP consists of three familiar tracks—”October”, “Near Dark“, and “Sad Loud Black Sound”—as well as the previously unheard “Down In The Quarry” and “Alabaster”. Each copy of the self-produced EP comes adorned with a handmade cover, individually drawn and numbered by the multitasking band.
Golden Red’s Americana-infused ditties sound rich and carefree, but in case you’re neither, they’ve still got you covered. The EP is priced to own at a measly three dollars, and the show is free, so you really have no excuse not to come down and immerse yourself in all the folky goodness.
