Widows Gold – “Nothing Can Break Me”


Another success from Widows Gold, “Nothing Can Break Me” is an empowering anthem from the California-based rockers. Madeline Star’s title-touting refrain emits a sturdy perseverance, even amidst “a tidal wave coming for me,” in the contemplative verses.

“Looking for something,” Star escalates in the rousing bridge, emphasizing a desire to live in the moment. A sharp-cutting rhythmic underlying shows shades of post-punk, while an excitable bridge approaching the three-minute mark injects a fun alt-rock nostalgia. “Nothing Can Break Me” is amongst a string of success for Widows Gold, who have impressed in the past with tracks like “I Can’t Help You” and “My Time to Talk.”

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of August 2023’ Spotify playlist.
