New Audio: Introducing the Sassy, 80s-Inspired Sound of London’s Mysterious, Up-and-Coming Act Gold Fir

Although currently comprised of a rather mysterious duo simply known as James and Mabel, the London-based electro pop duo Gold Fir have received attention both nationally and elsewhere for a sound that draws from 80s synth pop, classic house and electro pop — and in a way that feels warmly familiar, as you’ll hear on their latest single “Night Walk,” a track that will remind listeners of George Michael‘s “I Want Your Sex,” Chaka Khan’s and Rufus‘ “Ain’t Nobody,” Chaka Khan‘s “I Feel For You,” and Nu Shooz’s “I Can’t Wait,” but while being incredibly self-assured and coquettish. But perhaps just as important, the new single reveals a duo that can craft an infectious and bold hook within an even bolder track.
