GOLDROOM announces “Embrace” EP for September 9, tour dates, Elliott Smith cover

By on August 14, 2013



Meteorically rising artist GOLDROOM will be releasing the Embrace EP on September 9 and touring extensively across the U.S. in support.  



Today Goldroom gives us this cover of his favorite artist, Elliott Smith.  The Fader writes “I’m confused whether it’s adding something truly interesting or is just sacrilege….This is so weird.”


Check out the rest of Goldroom’s music over at Soundcloud and the tour dates below.  


This spring The Guardian made Goldroom a “New Band of the Day,” siting the success of the single and video for “Only You Can Show Me” which partially was responsible for bringing Goldroom up to 52,000 Facebook fans and 37,000 Soundcloud followers.


The recent “Only You Can Show Me” single made an instant connection, bringing in a quarter of a million plays to date and seeing Pitchfork comment, “when the drums and synths rush back from the grave, it’s like hearing an old favorite return to the dance floor.”  


MTV Buzzworthy called it a “a thick slice of tropical disco,” and the band became a “Most Blogged Artist” on Hype Machine for the second time. 


The Embrace EP will be Goldroom’s first proper length release since 2012.
