Golden Richards Releases Energetic Rock Track “Will I Be Cool”
The members of Golden Richards are Gil Golden on guitars, Billy Richards on lead vocals and guitars, Marianne Magic on keyboards and vocals, Henry Western on drums, and Sonny Dee on bass guitar. Gil and Billy met following a screening of Enter the Dragon by Bruce Lee. They made friends and formed a band because they shared similar musical preferences. Fortunately, they added Marianne, Henry, and Sonny as companions. Another buddy, Carrianne Magique, occasionally plays the keyboard and provides backup vocals during live performances. The band’s influences range from classic rock to alternative 80s music to college rock to alternative 90s music.
In April of 2022, Golden Richards performed at the International Pop Overthrow Festival in Chicago. A handful of their songs have been included on the Sirius XM Underground Garage channel, and their song “Shake Your Hair” has been featured on the Sirius channel Coolest Songs in the World. According to the band, their single “Will I Be Cool” is about attending summer camp as a young adolescent and how they wanted to express the thrill and uncertainty of coming of age with a catchy chorus and a faint vintage atmosphere.
“Will I Be Cool” has a genre mixture of grunge, indie, and classic rock and roll. From start to finish, the track feels very nostalgic. This is because of the amazing distorted riffs that have just the right amount of gain in them. Aside from that, the vocals are also quite crisp and connect amazingly well with the overall instrumentation. Check out the song below!
