From being the man at the front of Golden Silvers, to inventing the still-ahead-of-its-time generative music format Bronze – with his remarkable seven-song suite Tender Metal – Gwilym is now ready to remove the mask with a record on which he finally defines himself as an artist; A Paradise, to be released in August. Much of A Paradise was composed by Gwilym alone at home at the piano, before he took the songs to co-producer and longtime collaborator Lexxx (Wild Beasts, Fatima Al Qadiri, Darkstar). The two then spent the best part of a year together in a small room in Konk Studios, London, toiling on this extended labour of love. There are also co-production contributions from James Young of Darkstar, True Panther artist Hyetal and Bullion, whilst four songs feature composer Nico Muhly’s verdant, dizzying string arrangements. “Stunning” Q Magazine “Gold manages to fashion something genuine and new” Loud & Quiet “Gwilym Gold has the kind of voice that makes you lean in. It cracks at points, gently, intriguingly.” The Fader
