Goldpark – Lady Lightyear
Indie rock three-piece Goldpark just released the glorious “Lady Lightyear” and will be on tour throughout May and June, playing some of these shows with fellow Nashvillians The Thing With Feathers. I first noticed Goldpark thanks to their formidable cover of the New Radicals’ superhit “You Get What You Give,” which I immediately added to my Cool Covers playlist.
Formed in 2019, Goldpark is the project of Wes James (vocals), Andrew Smith (guitar), and Kyle Neblett (drums). Asked about “Lady Lightyear,” the band says:
Love is the closest thing that we have to magic. It’s the only thing that drives us to cross countries, oceans, or even galaxies. There are traces of love in every truly great thing that we can see, hear or touch. All great art comes from some form of love. It doesn’t all look the same though. Sometimes it’s the fear of love. Or maybe the feeling of being broken over love. But it’s all love. Lady Lightyear is a song for all of the Milky Way and beyond to enjoy together. Leave the door open for love somewhere in the stars.
Love is truly magical and knows no boundaries. Great reminder to be open for love wherever you are or wherever you’re looking for it. Listen to “Lady Lightyear,” our Song Pick of the Day:
