Singer and Guitarist Alina von der Gathen about “Gold”:
“Gold talks about realising that every human experience is essentially precious and worth honouring. All we have is gold, even the pieces and parts that we’d like to erase about ourselves, the things that are not pretty, not appropriate, not the way they’re supposed to be. At the end of the song, however, there is a lot of doubt about whether everything will keep getting better once we realise that life is precious. It ends with the uneasy premonition that things will get really dark, before they will turn lighter again.
The track was the first song to be recorded in Denmark. We recorded everything on our own in a little cottage, with the help of a mobile studio that we brought along with us.”
KOJ have also performed “Gold” live for Speicher Sessions. Watch the performance here > https://youtu.be/Lytms_eLf6c

Three musicians. Two brothers. One married couple. This is KOJ. Together they give life to a sound that is full of contrasts, sometimes roaring, untamed and raw, as the ocean that inspires them, other times delicate, fragile and minimalistic.
