Gold Lake: "We Already Exist" MP3 - Due June 18th
Carlos Del Amo and Lua Rios (Lua is the daughter of Spanish rock pioneer, Miguel Rios) met while still in their teens forming the band We Are Balboa in their native Spain. After several releases and a trip to SXSW in 2009 they relocated to NYC where they took on drummer, Dave Burnett. The next few years of touring and writing saw the trio coalescing into what we hear now on their two-song "We Already Exist" single, due June 18th. This is the first teaser of what's to come on their debut album, Years. Written and recorded in Madrid, it was mixed in Seattle with renowned producer Phil Ek (The Walkmen, Father John Misty, The Shins, Fleet Foxes).
Galloping down trails bordered by long wet grass, a hot heavy sun rising above motionless trees, this song, by Gold Lake, takes you down a winding dirt path to a cool spring where you can stop, drink, and rest.
