Kosie – “Struck Gold” (feat. Amber Navran)


“Struck Gold” is a lush electro-pop and funk-tinged track from Los Angeles artist Kosie, featuring the vocals of Amber Navran. The track comes from the new album Beauty Sleep. Tender guitars and synth spurts accompany Navran’s captivating vocals, with brass-tinged escalation around the one-minute mark carrying into a stellar, soulful hook. Touting ’90s pop nostalgia, “Struck Gold” is a thorough success from the impressive Beauty Sleep.

Per Kosie: “The original beat for this song was made on my first iPhone 5 (imaschine) when I took a ferry to a Greek island of Chios to visit a colleague of mine. I specifically remember Amber commenting on a post I made on Instagram in 2014 and kept her in mind as a potential collaboration when the song took full form down the road.”

Kosie also recently featured as the saxophonist on the song “King James” by Anderson .Paak.

“Struck Gold” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of September 2019’ Spotify playlist.
