It’s been four years since Zach Coulter, Matt Locher, Adam Hurlburt—better known as the original members of electro-glam-rock group Solid Gold—released an album. And, to be honest, we’ve missed their layered, atmospheric, can’t-put-my-finger-on-it sound.
Fortunately, the band—now with brothers Jacob and Jeremy Hanson on board (Drew Christopherson provided percussion for the CD’s recording)—sensed our need for a fix, and came out with a new album, Eat Your Young, this past October. They’ll celebrate their new tunes with a CD release party tonight at First Avenue. But because we know you don’t want to (and/or can’t) wait that long, we’ve posted the music video for their song “Elephants” below.
The video, shot by Dan Huiting at Twin Cities Public Television’s Studio A, doubles as a sneak-peek of Solid Gold’s upcoming appearance on tpt’s weekly art series, MN Original. Check out mnoriginal.org for more details. In the meantime, enjoy the fresh Solid Gold tuneage.
