“On the weight of its criminally catchy debut EP $TANDARD$, the synth-pop project came out of nowhere to capture area acclaim, win Song Of The Year honors by (88Nine Radio Milwaukee,) and put on lively shows everywhere from Turner Hall and Burnhearts/Pabst Street Party to fashion shows, a concert cruise, and the 20th anniversary party at Walker’s Pint.” – Tyler Maas, The Milwaukee Record
“It’s worth noting how perfectly every element of their sound works—the fluttery interplay of the drums and bass, the contrasting lightness and heaviness of the synths, the way the hooks and melodies seem to flower from each other at will. It’s all wonderful.” – Evan Rytlewski, Shepherd Express
Making use of the traditionals of the genre — synths and synthetic beats, GGOOLLDD creates an effervescent environment for female vocals that are neither trying too much or too little, a small amount of sweetness is lightly bolstered by an attitude of fun and confidence, recalling a bit of Yelle and a bit of Ladytron, finding a mix that feels good to dance to.
GGOOLLDD has shared the stage with the likes of Yelle, Yacht, Sylvan Esso, Har Mar Superstar, Strand of Oaks, The Family Crest, White Fang, Alvvays, Drowners, The Preatures, and The Polyphonic Spree, among others.
Named the Wisconsin Band to Watch by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, alternative radio favorite GGOOLLDD is quickly becoming one of the most popular Milwaukee bands to book. With recent concerts ranging from Milwaukee’s Cactus Club to Chicago’s Cubby Bear, from headlining Pablove 2015 to hosting seven shows at South by Southwest 2015, GGOOLLDD is destined for greatness in the year ahead. ‘
See them live at PrideFest Milwaukee!
