Cole Randall – “Our Golden Years”

cole randall

Cole Randall’s “Our Golden Years” evolves from a barren acoustical stride and Randall’s airy vocals into a rousing development of evolving percussion, symphonic flourishes, and backing vocal expansion. Randall’s voice resembles Grizzly Bear’s Ed Droste in tone, while his songwriting expansiveness and buildup-friendly gravitation brings to mind Girls’ Christopher Owens. Comparisons aside, “Our Golden Years” showcases a songwriter capable of exuding greatly endearing and highly melodic qualities.
