Bowie-like chords arise from a murky and mysterious miasma of white noise. Throaty vocals soon join in: “Rather drown myself in gasoline than to settle, oh to settle.. then I’ll burn so bright that I could be seen from heaven, oh heaven…”
No other introduction could better reflect Goshfather’s official plunge into the world of a solo producer. “Gasoline” is the first track he has publicly released since “Goshfather & Jinco,” his former project with Jeremy Berger, suffered a not-so-amicable schism last year. While the opening lyrics allude to the tale of betrayal written into his past, the wailing melody itself suggests the emotion behind such loss and subsequent resurrection. However, the polyphonous buildup of the song and subsequent drop, indicate a raw, creative power that will no doubt propel him into this new era of production- free from the restraints of partnership and its politics. In the body of the song, the heavy kick drum pattern emulates the beating of an artistic heart that’s not ready to give out any time soon.
Goshfather writes on his Soundcloud:
“With great pride I introduce you guys to GASOLINE.. a new beginning for me creatively and a song that I’ve been sitting on and working on since the new year.
I am so excited to open this new chapter and bring you guys music that speaks to me.. and to show you guys where my mind is going music wise..”
