Gold Class get intense in their ‘Twist In The Dark’ video

The band’s new album ‘Drum’ is coming out in August.

Australian post-punks Gold Class are releasing their second album ‘Drum’ in August, and we’ve got the first play of the intense new video for the album’s equally in-your-face single ‘Twist In The Dark’. The track is a tight, unforgiving trip through post-punk, taking the genre in endless different directions, careering towards krautrock at times. The new clip sees vocalist Adam Curley prowling the front of the (sort of) stage, recreating the band’s chaotic live shows. Talking about the new record in a press release, Adam says: The week we started to write ‘Drum’, my relationship ended and I was left alone in a draughty old house, which belonged to a friend of a friend. In the house, I sat around with my notebook, the quiet hours cut with news from friends and the TV: the suicides of musicians and writers I’d known and queer kids I hadn’t; the systematic abuse of vulnerable people, the constant mockery of anyone on the outs. “I knew what the purpose of the album would be when I wrote the repeated line in ‘Get Yours’: “There’s none left here and all I need.” I wanted it to be a record of defiance, a resistance to the idea of scrambling for a place at a table that wasn’t set for you. A sort of a love letter to anyone who not only can’t meet the standard but doesn’t want to. I wanted it to be a record of rage and ecstasy and endless nights and sex and dumb fun and ventures in solidarity. Not just an album of urgency and longing, but one of abandon and a reclaiming of a self beyond boundaries.” Watch the ‘Twist In The Dark’ video below.
