Album Review: New Soul – Gold Complex

It took three years for Canadian band GOLD COMPLEX to perfect and defined their sound for their latest album, ‘New Soul’.

The album introduces, what can be described as, alternative R&B with a luscious lick of funk featured through single, ‘Homegirl’ and goes on to flaunt between various bluesy/nu soul elements  working in unison with the occasional presence of progressive pop/rock with questionably a hint of EDM (heard in single, ‘Meant to Dance.’)

From what I can remember, ‘New Soul’ is a slight shift from their neo-soul-centred signature, displayed in their previous self-titled album. Although there’s more elements of contrasting tones, the arrangements are still as harmonic as ever – pull together by those killer soulful vocals.
