Gold Connections new album, Popular Fiction spins out from its smooth black centre in wide concentric circles, like rings in a tree. Listen close, and you'll hear all the people Will Marsh has ever been. A little kid, only twelve, thrilled beyond measure to be toying with a four-track and a six-string. A Dylan obsessive at seventeen, reeling from heartbreak and wanderlust, and daring, in the tradition of his idol, to put the feelings in song. Awake too early the morning after his birthday party, newly twenty-one, traipsing through a vast void of virgin snow with a guitar strapped firm to his back.
After a debut EP in 2017 on Fat Possum Records, Will is at last ready to introduce the world to Gold Connections full length LP, Popular Fiction, out May 11th.
