Gold Connections is songwriter and guitarist Will Marsh of Charlottesville, Virginia. Culled from a 2014 DIY rock recording from Marsh’s days as a undergrad student at the College of William & Mary, “Faith In Anyone” is one of five tracks to feature on a self-titled EP slated for release on 31 March via Fat Possum Records.
“Faith In Anyone” fuses contemplative, stream-of-conscious lyricism with collosal swells of guitar. The song's steady ascension captures both a sense of longing and lethargy, with repeated lyrics “I know, I know we will never grow old / I could never lose faith in anyone” becoming a mantra of numbed surrender to a seemingly static, endless present.
The cut features production, engineering, and mixing by Will Toledo of Car Seat Headrest. Although Toledo is not a current member of Gold Connections, he contributed electric guitar, drums, bass, and backing vocals throughout the 2014 recording process.
