Balsamine – “Fools Gold”


A brief yet riveting single from Balsamine, “Fools Gold” swells from beach-set lyrical introspection amidst breezy guitars into doses of heavier distortion. The second half enamors in the seamless cohesion between these trickling, surf-y guitar tones and the more ferocious rock griminess. “Compared to my other singles, this is a new sound that I am experimenting with,” Balsamine explains. “Fools Gold” has us pushing for replays.

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