Today’s New Track | Gold Lake’s “We Already Exist”

“We Already Exist” gorgeously breaks open, simply and subtle like portaging a seemingly infinite tree line before reaching your freshwater oasis. Perhaps that’s what the cover to their debut album attempts to insinuate – a break into the void. Naturally, that’s how their lead track starts, building off silence by awakening a keyboard, next drums and guitar, before swiftly being carried by the velvet breeze of Lua Rios’ voice.

Despite holing out in Brooklyn, NY, Gold Lake has a crisp attraction to nature. Matter of fact, I haven’t seen a music video more attracted to its own surroundings since Bon Iver’s “Holocene”. The lacquered sheen over every frame, harmonic coo and steady guitar strum are equally spellbinding in “We Already Exist”, earning it a listen-through at the very least. The track lies below; and why not cue up the video? It’s something of a trip – trailing an aluminum disco ball-faced woman into silviculture.
