about

TORCH, the debut full-length record for Vancouver Island art-rockers GOLD & SHADOW, is a beautiful synthesis of melody and noise, calm and chaos, or if you will, gold and shadow. Touching on themes of hope, loss, conviction, and ultimately redemption, TORCH is wide in scope and sound, embellishing the guitars and drums with organs, harmonies, and widescreen ambience. A reflection of its West Coast origins, TORCH is a perfect companion to the wild, oceanic landscapes of Vancouver Island, and a testament to the hope, beauty, and inspiration found therein.

Track Name: Half Moon
let’s walk to the oil rig tonight
you’re in a funny state of mind
you’ll make a lunar landing site
and wait for heathens to arrive

this crazy half-melon dream
I’m only one half of this thing
we’ll try to make this work again
but I am losing patience

we’ll take the weekend
and go out to see the Providence lights
but in the shadow of the spectre
you would lose your mind

let somebody know
let somebody know you’re moving slow
walk into the room, helpless under lights
you begin to move to this half melon, half moon tonight

one step back, one step in
you were there when I didn’t know your name
one step back, one step in, one step down
