Goldcure: a rising alternative rock band from the Austin music scene, comprised of members Adam Buhrman, Craig Haskell, Gavin Inverso and John Allison. While clearly delivering a unique and original sound, Goldcure''s debut album, Portuguese Prince, evokes inspiration ranging from Wilco, Travis, and The Verve, at times tapping a depth reminiscent of bands like U2, The Rolling Stones and The Beach Boys. The album begins with the voices of Buhrman and Haskell harmonizing to the driving, mesmeric pulse of Inverso and Allison. This symphonic, rock-anthem sound carries you into each track, creating a spacious landscape to interact with the band''s honest, penetrating lyrics and thoughtful instrumentation. The result is an album that begs exploration and finally finds a life of its own in its audience.
Portuguese Prince is produced by lifelong musician, songwriter, and producer Stephen Doster. Stephen credits his work with the late James Honeyman-Scott of The Pretenders for inspiring his impulse to merge with Goldcure. Honeyman-Scott was producing a record for Stephen at the time of his tragic death. Stephen writes, "When I first heard Goldcure a bell went off in my head. The melodies, the harmonies and the big guitars were very familiar. Working with them is like unfinished business with me. Although there are many influences you can definitely hear Honeyman floating around in there."
Portuguese Prince is an album that discloses something personal and timeless, groaning out the music that''s often locked within - even if it''s just for a moment''s peace of mind.
