The new single from indie singer-songwriter Andrew Goldring called “Cosmic Dance” captures sounds that are out there and brings them down to Earth to the good luck of listeners.
It’s a new take on shoegaze, with some interesting techniques on the production. “Cosmic Dance,” is a gem of a song, emotive and filled with a star quality reflective of its title.
The mastering of the single is a solid work as well. The single was produced and engineered by Goldring. There’s no lack of talent on the “Cosmic Dance,” which was mixed and mastered by Philip Shaw Bova, who has worked with Feist, Andy Shauf and Bahamas.
Listen to “Cosmic Dance” on Bandcamp.
Goldring is a Salt Lake City-based performer and while it’s not exactly a hotbed of rock and roll, Goldring is a clear-cut hit. The new “Cosmic Dance” release is a great work and study in how to produce a record on a budget that maximizes the sound of a small group.
Goldring has fronted two different bands in the last few years, including Golden Sun, Great Interstate, but made the decision to go on his own in 2016. His LP, Heritage has received critical acclaim.
He’s also a multi-talented musician. Goldring plays drums, bass, keyboards and guitar; Christian Lucy is on vocals and provides additional keyboards.
With this talent and innovative outlook on life, Goldring could indeed catch the Brass Ring, so to speak, on this single. He’s been featured on NPR affiliate KUER’s RadioWest with Doug Fabrizio as well as on 90.9 KRCL’s RadioActive.
