Bio

GOSH haven’t been around long but have wasted no time in creating a cult-like following for themselves in their home-town of Wollongong. Dynamic, melodic and emotional - yet still cool, the band follow in the footsteps of indie rockers gone before, and allude to a very promising future for the genre.

With their debut and sophomore singles “Honestly” and "Isle Of Pines" creating a lot of hype, along with support slots for Lime Cordiale, Vacations, The Vanns and Heaps Good Friends - the band didn’t let the heightened platform go to waste with their follow up release.

The band’s latest offering “Take A Leaf” sees the group back to their hooky and well crafted ways. A swift 3 minute onslaught of effective pummelling guitars, and a grittier lead vocal than GOSH fans are used to brings about a different energy to that heard on singles prior. The raw and more charged vocal tone accentuates the message of the lyric, as an internal struggle unfolds between the desire to reach one’s full potential, and the hardwearing habit of wasting time on things inconsequential and ultimately unsatisfying. Still clearly GOSH at its core, the piece is upbeat, rocky, and catchier than ever underneath all the unfiltered frustration. Backed by a grand wall of guitar layers in the chorus, the instrumentation only emphasises the release of bottled up emotion which leaves the track dripping.

Influences like The Strokes, The Killers, Gang Of Youths and Catfish And The Bottlemen can be heard throughout the group’s live set, which has clearly already impressed many and lead to a number of sold out shows.

I wanted to take my time listening before I reviewed this one. It's got this familiarity to it and it's so comforting to hear. I love the ambition and the grand moments that build throughout. Solid.l FFO Catfish & The Bottlemen.

i'm hearing a bit more gang of youth/catfish on this one, it's got that anthemic jolt about it.
