Andrew Goldring - Morning Light
(Independent, July 1, 2017)
• Buy the CD
Andrew Goldring offers a memorable entry into the psychadelic Americana/singer-songwriter canon with Morning Light, his upcoming EP. It's the Salt Lake City, UT native's first release as a solo artist, after spending the last 5 years or so fronting two different bands. Morning Light is self produced, and mixed/mastered by Philip Shaw Bova (Feist, Andy Shauf, Bahamas).
The result is a lush sound with a layered texture. Goldring has a well defined sound that takes over your brain waves. Cosmic Dance, appropriately enough, is languid and trippy, a layered synth-pop sound with an anthemic melody. The vocals are whispery against the ebb and flow of the music.
Maybe God just speaks in images
Reflections painted on our eyes...
As a writer and composer, Andrew offers well crafted songs and thoughtful lyrics. He ponders universal questions with a fresh perspective, including the well worn topic of love. From Let Me Be,
You were like a ceiling, hanging above my head
But you could string my heart strings
Till the end of all reason
Now my mind keeps on spinning...
Beautiful Lie is a standout track, a beautiful listen with soaring, poignant vocals and a mournful mood wrapped up in a slow, deliberate, and hypnotic beat.
He's just returned from a successful tour of the southwestern US this spring, and is currently preparing for the release of Morning Light on July 1, 2017. The EP will be released on CD,
Digital, and a limited edition 10” Vinyl pressing. Andrew's music has been featured on NPR affiliate KUER’s RadioWest with Doug Fabrizio, and regularly appears on Utah community radio station KRCL.
