Emerging from a blend of darkness and glow sticks, Philly’s Goth Goth stitches together the sounds of The Cure, Bauhaus, The Clash, Television, and Blondie to forge a potent post-punk patchwork. With chime-like guitars, a heart-thumping bass, and groovy drums, they’re led by a frontman whose stage presence is as magnetic as it is moody. Known for electrifying live shows that leave the audience abuzz, Goth Goth serves a heaping helping of nostalgia with a 21st century twist.
Their new LP, Degradation Pink, brings a fresh twist to the music scene, blending modulated guitar riffs, solid bass lines, dance-inducing drums, and electrifying guitar solos. The album delves into themes of love, relationships, and disillusionment, showcasing a dynamic range of vocal performances in both English and Spanish.
Degradation Pink kicks off with the haunting track No Rave, featuring jangly guitars and compelling hooks that echo the sounds of The Gun Club, Southern Death Cult, and Lords of the New Church. Its lyrics paint a picture of unity and importance, casting the speakers as pivotal and selected figures of their time. The song gravitates towards the seriousness of their message, steering clear of any frivolous or party-like themes. Throughout, there’s a subtle yet palpable theme of obedience and control.
“Degradation Pink” was produced by Philly compadres Vince Duong (Doused) and Niko Berardo (Te Vista) and mastered by Alex Santilli at Spice House Sound in Philadelphia.
