Goldenboy-The New Familiar
Light chamber pop for your ears
Goldenboy’s latest album is chock full of lush strings and beautiful melodies that are sure to make any heart sing. It should be no surprise to anyone that Goldenboy has a connection with Elliott Smith as both know how to craft great pop songs in the classic vein of groups like the Beatles, only with more modern indie sensibility. Check out songs like “Today’s the Day” and “Starlight Town” to find out exactly what I’m talking about.
