BARS OF GOLD PREMIERE VIDEO FOR “$20”
Detroit based post-rock, indie sextet Bars of Gold recently put out new LP SHELTERS and today they’ve released a video from it for “$20”. Directed and animated by guitarist Scotty Iulianelli the video is a visual representation of how he sees the world. Since suffering a concussion in 2016 where he was knocked unconscious for an undetermined amount of time Iulianell started to see the world in a new way where geometry and math in the universe started to reveal itself differently. His new perspective flows through the video with explosive colors, shapes, and vividly illustrated portraits of the band. The album is available now via Equal Vision Records and be sure to see them live this spring/summer across the US for select tour dates (full dates below).
Consisting of members of seminal post-hardcore band Bear vs. Shark and Detroit experimental mainstays Wildcatting, Bars of Gold have honed in on their frenetic, guitar-driven post-rock with the addition of a 4th guitarist, John Gaviglio, longtime friend of the band and ex-Bear vs. Shark guitarist. Add in Marc Paffi’s urgent howls and you have an ambient post-rock record with torrential rhythms, a melodic foray of extremely keen sensibilities for dynamics melded with an underlying realized anxiety. Six years since their highly lauded Wheels LP, Bars of Gold are never one to rush a good thing and it’s apparent in the carefully considered music within the tracks of SHELTERS, an album that’s fortified in friendship and family and borders on musical telepathy.
