Review of "Cold Hands" by Damnit Goldie
Hello again, it's me, your favorite inconsistently publishing blogger! So apparently, when you write absurdly detailed reviews of albums from your favorite bands, there's a non-zero chance of someone asking you to review other things. So that's what I'm doing here. Keep in mind I have no idea of the "proper" format for reviews, nor do I have extensive musical knowledge. I just enjoy music with good instrumentals and lyrics.
"Cold Hands" is the latest single from Damnit Goldie, a rock band based in Toronto. The song starts in right away with an aggressive guitar that then drops to a more melodic tone when the vocals come in. It's a song about heartbreak, as so many songs are. I get some serious mid to late aughts emo/pop-punk vibes from the vocalist, which I am seriously loving (we never outgrow the music from adolescence, I'm convinced). The lyrics are also incredibly catchy, and not just because I've listened to it at least ten times already. "Cold hands writing again, will these just be more words I've sung?" is a refrain at the end of the song that really sticks with me, as someone who wrote a plethora of love poems for someone who definitely didn't deserve or appreciate them. Overall, very solid song that has earned them a new fan.
They've got some other singles that are equally great as well. If you're a millennial who enjoys rock music, you're likely to enjoy Damnit Goldie. Not a millennial? You'll probably still enjoy them. You can find their music on Spotify, Youtube, Apple music, itunes, and Google play. You can follow them on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
I hope y'all enjoyed this review, and I promise I'll start posting more consistently soon! Also, if you're in a band or have affiliation with one and want me to write something for you, feel free to reach out!
