Bright Gold Cross
The first new single from the forthcoming Falling Down EP, Bright Gold Cross takes Australia’s synth-wave synonymy to our ears with all the trimmings. An album about giving in to guilty pleasures and neglecting the consequences, the single is accompanied by a video made by Dingo Cross Films. An outback sense perhaps a necessary metaphor for the ultimate destination that bad choices lead to. The solo project of Schizo Scherzo’s Pete Endall, his previous band enjoyed a marathon of success in the 80s, working alongside Fergal Sharky, Real Life, Pseudo Echo, and The Eurythmics in the process.
A cymbal breaks open the sound as synth voices begin to sing with choral harmonies. A dappled sense of tone ensues as various layers snake and slide into place. Rhythm with strict drumming keeps a quick-paced time that feels like running or a pumping heart. Inventive melodies rise from the vocals as effects and digital sounds merge with the human voice. Digital bass and treble sounds playfully jostle for space in the rising energy of music. A spiralling form of compositional uplift creates a continual surge of forward motion as the chorus flows from the verses in merry and memorable patterns.
