'Gold & Red' is an album characterised as much by its melodic grace as by its pervasive sense of doom - recorded in the cavernous orchestral hall of Brisbane's historic Old Museum with Cameron Smith (Velociraptor, No Anchor), mixed by Aaron Cupples (The Drones, Paul & Dan Kelly, SNOWMAN) and mastered by Nao Anzai (Laura, Because Of Ghosts, These Hands). The nine songs here recognise a growing maturity and depth that has been brought to life by the considered approach to the compositions.

petal creates this prolific wall of sound that envelops you in a thick curtain of warmth that spreads softly throughout your body. her sullen, well spoken words resonate so loudly in my heart. it’s just so... lovable. put in the name for your bandcamp
