Everything that I have seen and heard from Philadelphia group Golden Ages has been very cutting edge. This band has influences, yes, but they pick apart the good pieces and expand on them for a sound both entrancing and captivating. There is something entirely dream-like about everything this band touches, yet it is vivid and clear. This trait is blatant in their video for “Everything Will Be Alright”; traffic signs and light posts split apart and drift away. In the beginning, a bizarre triangle appears, like a portal into a parallel universe. There are peaceful moments, risque moments, and moments that are downright terrifying. “Everything Will Be Alright” demonstrates that the mind can be a very elusive, deceitful, nightmarish thing.
“Everything Will Be Alright” is off Golden Ages debut LP, Tradition.
