If there’s any record label we’ve had our eye on recently, it would have to be Vagrant. Having popped up with some of this year’s hottest artists including The 1975, S O H N and now Wake Owl, things are looking quite bright for the aging indie label.
Having recently placed Wake Owl, otherwise known as Colyn Cameron on their roster, the label has been busy building up excitement for the Vancouver native’s forthcoming EP, Wild Country. Starting with this cheerfully summery single “Gold,” Cameron puts his subtly rugged vocals to work in this softly-sung acoustic ballad that sweeps between its carefree lyrics. Backed by a full band of drums, violin and guitar, “Gold” finds influence in the country dynamic but with the appeal of the singer/songwriter front. And when it comes down to it, it’s part of the jolly old spirit of this single, that really has us enamoured. Make sure to find our for yourself below.
