Gold Spectacles Share New Single ‘Anywhere Else’

London-based collaborative multi-instrumentalist, songwriting and producing duo Gold Spectacles have just shared their brand new single Anywhere Else, the third single to emerge from their upcoming EP, More Heart than Sense, out May 2023. 
Out now via The Woods, Anywhere Else is a warm, laid-back indie-pop song with retro vibes that instantly got me in a good mood and ready for a chill weekend. I am really enjoying the smooth, expressive vocals which are nicely backed by a driving riff played on a trusty OP-1 synth leads, a cool spanish guitar, a vintage hammond organ and an energetic bassline that together create a playful, danceable beat that enhances the song's upbeat, feel-good vibes. This is one of those songs perfect to be the soundtrack of your holidays and for those moments when you just want to escape everyday life. Check it out below!



Speaking about the song, Gold Spectacles said, 
We wrote ‘Anywhere Else’ on a trip to Barcelona, our first time abroad since the pandemic, because we didn't want to go home. We borrowed a guitar and recorded all the parts on our phones with a rough sketch of the vocal line. Over the following days, we pieced together the lyrics in tapas bars and on the metro. The desire to leave everything mundane behind was overwhelming and the thought of running away never looked so good. As soon as we got back to London, we went straight to the studio to finish it. We ended up keeping some of the Spanish guitar we recorded on the voice memos so we don't forget the tapas and Cava anytime soon.
