Hailing from Suffolk-via-Essex, UK, Tropic Gold offer up a sleekly modern meld of alternative, metal, pop, and electronica, cajoling their passions for an adynamic culture pool of music and production styles into a single sonic petri dish. Though originally formed in 2019, the quartet have spent years in the lab, developing their sound and strong aesthetics behind the closed doors of a bespoke, self-built multimedia studio. The Tropic Gold method is truly hands on, with guitarist Joshua Lee handling all production and recording duties, as well as diving into the weeds on their visual curation, manning the camera and edit suite as often as the production chair. Today, with their vision firmly in grasp, the band are ready to move beyond the prologue and have struck up a partnership with UNFD to bring their infectious soundscapes to a global audience. Pairing swathes of moody atmospherics with soaring, ear worm choruses, the bands songs feel like they would be equally A Vibe™ pulsing across sticky, cramped dancefloors as soaring atop airy arenas. Coming on like a new romantic Bring Me The Horizon or a post-breakup Don Broco who just discovered their parents copy of The Cure’s ‘Disintegration’ or a 45rpm copy of ‘Sing The Sorrow’ playing at 33rpm… tl;dr: Tropic Gold are as gloomy as they are catchy. Sharing a sonic space with the likes of the aforementioned BMTH and Broco, PVRIS,(latter-day) Architects, Caskets, Spiritbox’s plaintive moments and even Enter Shikari (albeit on Valium), Tropic Gold are is just getting started in figuring out how to weaponize their cocktail of slap and swag.
