it is impossible to deny the truck-load of bands currently coming out of Oxford. still part of Jonquil (along with members of Chad Valley, Trophy Wife, and Pet Moon), Sam Hudson Scott has also turned his hand to a solo project called Solid Gold Dragons. despite holding elements of contemporary art-rock, 'Serious Lover' is predominantly brimming with the influence of new wave artists like Arthur Russell. Sam's vocal is soulful, and with the warm tones of brass behind him, the track is a tiny insight into the great potential of the already mentioned bands. probably my favourite song to have emerged so far from this hyped scene.
fall in love with Solid Gold Dragons here.
