LISTEN: Gold Connections Feeds On ’90s Indie Guitar Rock On Energetic “Bleed”

Will Marsh started Gold Connections at the College of William and Mary, where longtime friend Will Toledo (Car Seat Headrest) produced and recorded Marsh’s debut self-titled EP released in 2017 on Fat Possum Records. With newly found access to professional studios, such as Mitch Easter’s Fidelitorium, Gold Connections followed up their youthful EP with two new releases that adventured into hi-fi, 2018’s Popular Fiction and 2019’s Like A Shadow, both via EggHunt Records. Ammunition is their first self-release with distribution through AWAL. A

Asked about the meaning behind the album and its provocative title, frontman Will Marsh writes: “It’s about finding yourself in a moment which you can only battle through to survive,” he says. “I’m not talking about street violence or anything literal like that, but the smell of combat that lingers in the air, that fight or flight feeling which permeates even mundane situations. ” With Marsh now in the driver seat as a producer, and a matured yet scrappy band behind him, Ammunition brings a new focus and sonic flexibility to the energetic rock and roll that’s made a name for this Virginia outfit.

Gold Connections is back with “Bleed” a brash and bleeding 90’s college rock tune reminiscent of Pavement, Pixies, and Guided By Voices. Marsh displays a concise understanding of tone and pop-rock song construction with lyrical wit and unyielding guitars forming an integral blast of rock urgency.
