A sparsely populated Electrowerkz played host to the endlessly evolving harmonies of Gwilym Gold last night. And when we say endlessly evolving it is not necessarily a reference to the performative nature of his Bronze format but merely that the ex-Golden Silvers frontman grows in confidence every time we see him.
In the past he has been separated from his audience, surrounded by machinery and avant garde airs but yesterday evening, with nothing but a keyboard in between him and his audience, the atmosphere was relaxed, warm, engaging and importantly utterly enveloping.
New track ‘Flex’, which Gwilym “finished writing the other day” was a particularly striking mark of how far he has come as a songwriter and an artist in these past few years. A slow heart breaker of a track, a forlorn beauty inhabits the shifting pace and tone of its intoxicating melody, its empty spaces offering up no alternative other than self reflection.
It was a shame that so few turned out to witness his distinctive creations last night, but having played a similar night at The Sebright arms not so long ago I think it is fair to say people are patiently and eagerly waiting the release of his debut full length.
