Directed by White Cube's Eddie Peake and featuring dance artist Fernanda Munoz-Newsom, take a look at the innovative singer's new video. His solo album, Bronze, was delivered in the form of a groundbreaking app, a high-concept debut that played a different version of his tracks with each press of play, so that you never heard the same song twice. It was the kind of experimentation.
When I first heard Gwilym Gold's "Muscule" I couldn't really grasp the depth and melancholy of the track. It felt just like one of those mellow singer/songwriter tracks, slightly inspired by some SOHN soundscapes.
Listen: Gwilym Gold - Muscle. A truly unique pop voice, Gwilym Gold signalled his return earlier this year. Preparing new material, the London based artist is set to team up with Eddie Peake and the Vinyl Factory for new release 'Muscle'. The track owes its origins to the time Gold and Peake spent working for the White Cube exhibition, Adjective Machine Gun. Improvising for hours at a time, Peake's dancers would engage with the music, performing while Gwilym Gold sat at the piano. Honed into one piece, the Vinyl Factory are set to give 'Muscle' a bespoke release.
Gwilym Gold has the kind of voice that makes you lean in. It cracks at points, gently, intriguingly. Muscle" is the first new single from the London-based artist since his 2012 album Tender Metal released on his own Bronze format (an app that, in essence, never played the same song the same way twice) and it's a quiet triumph. It's being released on July 14th on a new label called Hymn, founded by White Cube gallery backed artist Eddie Peake who Gold first worked.
Gwilym Gold ‘Muscle’ B. Gwilym Gold ‘Muscle’ (Beam rework). The first release on VF sub-label, HYMN- co-founded by Eddie Peake. Original track from Gwilym Gold ‘Muscle’ remix by Beam. Muscle is the first recorded material from Gwilym Gold since the release of the TENDER METAL project in 2012. As an idea, it remains truly ahead of its time.
