Fools Gold

'Fool's Gold' has been a band that we've been tracking for some time now. Even before WTKDK we had mentioned them to our friends. So we were excited to hear their first proper single "Surprise Hotel" and even more excited when "Nadine" was released. The music that 'Fool's Gold' produces is truly original, the fact that Luke and the crew croon in Hebrew is innovative enough, but to throw an African and Latin vibe into the instrumentals makes it extraordinary. "Nadine" is definitely the stand out between the two tracks, Top's wispy voice rolls over a buoyant bass line followed by an airy horn part that completes the song. Pick up both Mp3s, a 'Memory Tapes' remix of "Nadine," and check out the tour dates after the jump!
