Yaw Control – “Gold”


A resonating single from Chicago-based artist Yaw Control, “Gold” traverses from folk-centric haunts into a rousing rock culmination — strutting a versatility that reminds of a cross between Elliott Smith and Neil Young.

“I’m not getting back home, chasing my shadow,” the vocals begin, assembling a dreamy reflection that eventually rises into a buzzing array of guitars and twinkling keys. “If you have nobody else, take care of yourself,” the vocals remind during this climax, then falling back into an enthralling folk mystique. “Gold” is a stellar success from Yaw Control.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
