PREMIERE: Stream Gold Lake's Breezy New Album 'Years'

It will almost make you forget it's October.

Marissa G. Muller

"There is no country better than your heart," Lua Rios sings on "We Exist," a rolling open-air jam taken from Gold Lake's upcoming album Years. The Brooklyn-based band hails from Madrid but, listening to their latest album, you'd think they're from California. Their breezy dream-pop, with its bright guitar riffs and gauzy harmonies—mixed by Phil Ek, who's helped Father John Misty and Fleet Foxes achieve a similar sound—has the feel of a place where the sunshines almost all 365 days a year. Though their subject matter isn't exactly fit for a beach day. On "Arles," another standout from the album which also opens it, Rios sings about wanting more. It's a non-complacent piano and acoustic guitar-driven anthem into nearly four minutes. Stream the album in full below, and look out for it when it drops next Tuesday.

You can pre-order Years iTunes.
