Review: Goldie – ‘Fata Morgana’



An acoustic driven artist making his mark upon the current indie rock landscape, Goldie has become a central part of Vancouver’s blossoming music scene. With a love for the guitar, singing and songwriting, he’s developed a deft acoustic sound that is bolstered brilliantly by a flourishing penchant for the piano, drums, and bass. With a seemingly unlimited creative stride and comparisons to Jeff Buckley, Thom Yorke, and even Led Zeppelin on his resume, Goldie has marked himself as an artist on the rise.


While gearing up to release his debut album this March, Goldie is currently championing a series of impressive singles, including his latest offering, the folk-infused ‘Fata Morgana’. An ode to Werner Herzog film of the same name, Goldie’s new single arrives as a deft fusion of two worlds, carving itself out of rhythmic electronic drums and quick-fire finger snaps.


With a strong acoustic heart and vocals that linger, the new single builds on waves of folk-rock energy, creating a nuanced, yet tactile sound that few indie fans will be able to resist.



Complete with its new lyric video, it’s an impressive first look into the musical soul of Goldie. Stream the single for yourself above, and be sure to check out Goldie’s other singles on Apple Music and Bandcamp today.


Score: 7.5/10
