Anonymous and French, The Hedrals’ insidiously magnetic single ‘Golden’ is a trip forwards and backwards.
“The sacred, uncluttered and ceremonial” are blended with epic and cinematic layers, with beautifully baroque and antique.
The pronounced darkness is shimmeringly bright, as it replaces the over-rated light of the day. The encompassing frivolity of the day-to-day is coaxed into the dawn of a well manicured and aesthetic electronica infinitum.
A cause for alarm, in the best sense of the phrase.
‘Golden’ is a king’s treasure trove of subtleties and ingeniously malevolent. It casts away the waves that hits into the palisades, calming the waters and helping to right the ship, once more.
‘Golden is off of The Hedrals’ latest album, ‘Sola Fide’. Available now.
