Chicago's favorite dark-pop trio, My Gold Mask has debuted a brand new digital-only single to kick off a set of West Coast dates on a co-headline tour withnew wave outfit, California Wives. The track is the first in a series that will be released with unique artwork featuring the bands self designed "sigil" logo. Tapped once again to record and mix "Dangerous",Balthazar de Ley plays with the band's newly instilled use of electronics, including synthesizers. It's a new direction My Gold Mask is incorporating into their arsenal, shedding light in areas which enables them to better capture moods that blend with heart-wrenching lyrics and Rochelle's ever expressive vocals.
My Gold Mask on "Dangerous":
"Dangerous" is the first in a series of new singles that we will be unveiling in the coming months. They all have a unified cover design, signifying thematic and sonic connections. While still vocal and guitar driven, we are currently focused on fleshing out our electronic side as a three-piece. The lyrics are about a somewhat destructive relationship that is just too compelling to come to an end, even though maybe it should."
