“Our Love Is The Gold” is the third proper album from Paco Sala. Written over 4 years it marks a return to song-writing for the duo, employing fever-dream melodies and synth drunk hooks, balanced against off-kilter production that sets them apart from their peers.
Intense, impassioned, guttural yet enigmatic – the album documents the process of leaving London and the empowerment a new life inspires. The opening & title track is a statement of intent “are you aware of my power?” repeats Garza, leaving us in no doubt that we really shouldn’t doubt her.
Tone set, what follows is gloriously idiosyncratic and deeply personal pop, presented without compromise or concession. Direct, confident, articulate – gone are the the opiated improvisations of 2017’s “The Silent Season”, though the wilful sense of adventure remains throughout. “Our Love is The Gold” is a record of awakenings and self-discovery.
