Musical Gold

30 Mar

If The Eurythmics and Paramore joined together to write and sing a song, it would sound something along the lines of Ivy & Gold’s “Ghosts.”

Jamie Davies and Rachel Wilkinson mix the best of both alternative pop genres of the 80’s and now to create a sound of their own.

Wilkinson is as much Annie Lennox’s falsetto as Haley Williams drawl. It’s experimental but catchy, not veering too far into foreign territory.

The track opens with Wilkinson wailing like an angel which will leave listeners feeling haunted. Davies drives the lower register of the piano, dark and moody evocative of both the Eurthymics and Paramore.

“Ghosts” with its balance of light and dark, classical and electronic. is like an updated “I’ve Got an Angel” by the Eurthymics mixed with Paramore’s “My Heart.”

And it’s golden.
