Every week, 88Nine brings you a new track from a Milwaukee artist. They send it to us. We post it here. You hear it before everyone else.

GGOOLLDD is back with a new song, pulled from the depths of hard drive failure and recorded on a Wisconsin farm.

GGOOLLDD debuts a new song, “Superstar.” Photo courtesy of the band.

“Superstar” brings colossal, driving bass along with shout-along vocals, punctuated with plinking synth and guitar. As the track builds to its final refrain, the guitar kicks up and rises to the top of the mix, like a rockstar slowly emerging from a beneath a festival stage on a platform, surrounded by fog and beams of light. The ascent slices the song like a saber, perfectly fitting for a band as glitzy and bold as GGOOLLDD. Listen below.

In the artists’ words

We do have some Milwaukee shows this summer! Brady street fest (7/31) and a club show at the Cooperage (8/19)

We actually had an EP ready to finish up right after our “Here We Are” album release show which was cancelled 3 days before happening due to COVID. 

We were planning on releasing it in March, same day as the “Here We Are” release show 2 years later, but, alas, our hard drive broke and with no back up, we’ve been rewriting the songs from memory, which, I think are better for it.

We need these songs more now than we did then, and we’ve all changed a lot in the last two years. So now, in lieu of an album, we’ll be releasing the songs as they come, one at a time.

“Superstar” was written and first recorded on an biodynamic farm in New London, WI of all places. Irish Acres, definitely suggest checking it out. 

Every day, our mission drives us to share more great music and stories. But it’s our members who fuel that mission. If you aren’t one yet, what are you waiting for? Become a member today!
