This amazing song “Social Graces” by the talented duo Gold Spectacles, is one of the catchiest tunes on our blog this month. The singing is one of the most charming and beautiful pop voices I have ever heard, and the professional performance in this song is incredibly catchy. The production is smart and professional which took this song to a new level. Combining pop textures and consonants with languid vibrations, they create subtle combinations. The introspective nature of the lyrics, prominent baseline, plucky guitars, and the male/female vocal interplay come together to form Gold Spectacles signature sound.


Favoring a DIY approach, London-based Gold Spectacles make baroque-pop music. Drawing on an eclectic range of influences from Paul Simon to Phoenix to Lykke Li, their sonic palette toes the line between electronic and organic landscapes, blending the two parallels.

Their 2019 eponymous debut album was well received, achieving notable Spotify play listings (including Chill Vibes, All New Indie, and New Music Friday UK), gathering support from radio (including BBC 6 Music, KCRW, Amazing Radio, CISM 89.3) and blogs (including Indie Shuffle, EARMILK, Hillydilly, Line of Best Fit). This support has led the duo to the top of the Hype Machine on multiple occasions.
