Based between Berlin and Brussels, Golden Hours is comprised o of past and present players in Gang Of Four, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Tricky, The Fuzztones, The Third Sound, and Fifty Foot Combo, to name just a few. Making up the group is Hákon Adalsteinsson (Guitar/Vocals), Rodrigo Fuentealba Palavacino (Guitar), Tobias Humble (Drums/Vocals) and Wim Janssens (Bass/Keys/Vocals). A band with mileage and stories, they trade in gothic rock’n’roll missives that are at times dark, tense and hypnotic, at others sweaty, relentless and danceable.

On ‘Japan On My Mind’, Janssens says: “This song sounds like Tindersticks meets The Flaming Lips playing together in a bar in Tokyo on a rainy night. Eerie synths and sub-bass are topped off with minimal guitar strokes and riffs, followed by an outro that pulls this 4-minute melancholic trip straight into the void.”

On the Golden Hours project and its debut album, he wrote: “The musical backgrounds of each member are pretty broad but somehow when we come together there’s a pretty clear definition of what our music should sound like. There’s a beautiful friction between the noise we produce and the love for melody that seems to overtake at just the right moment. There never seems to be a lack of ideas when we come together. In silent agreement, every idea gets tried and will be further developed into a song or skipped in a heartbeat. No time is wasted. It all happens pretty automatically.”
