Hailing from San Diego, Dirty Gold are a three-piece group incorporating afropop melodies perfect for the summer beach season. Highlight track “California Sunrise” is a breezy tune, which drifts along on island drums and a lilting acoustic guitar. “Sea Hare” is a bouncier tune, that strums along on a toe-tapping beat, as the singer asks the waves to hide you and me. “The Quiet Life” takes a more somber tone, but never becomes melancholy, and closer “Overboard” opens with shimmering wind chimes, and brings in drifting vocals as the singer laments I think I’m dying, I’m going overboard. It would be a sad tune, if not the for the beauty of the music.
This is the kind of album you’ll want on your iPod as you lay by the beach, your pool, or in the sun this summer.
