Black Gold: Rush

Black Gold
Red Bull Records [2009]

Fire Drills Review:
You would never know by listening that Brooklyn's Black Gold is a duo because their debut record Rush is full of big expansive rock and hooks galore. The songs vary from the danceable to the hold the lighter in air ballads, which means there is a little for everyone. With that said, Black Gold have released a debut that may contain many different styles but it maintains consistent transitions that help Rush succeed in offering a solid listen.

Key Track: "Plans & Reveries"

Band With Similar Fire: Franz Ferdinand
