US Indie gone mainstream
Black Gold - Rush

Made up of two of the ‘so hawt right now’ Brooklyn indie scene’s players, Black Gold’s Than Luu and Eric Ronick met as hired hands on an Ambulance LTD tour four years ago.

Quickly developing what they claim to be a telepathically close musical empathy, the pair have worked on and off over the past few years bringing this debut album to fruition. Swiftly dodging the hipster tag, the duo testify to ‘Rush’ as a labour of love, drawing on their talent friends and neighbours to help flesh out their vision.

Despite such credible beginnings, the results are surprisingly mainstream, big choruses and FM airplay beckon.
