New song: Gold Baby – Dogbone

On ‘Dogbone’ Gold Baby’s Sian Alex fights on two fronts – against an artificial state of apathy that nearly convinced Alex she was void of all feeling and against gender stereotypes that caused her to fear she was being ‘bossy’ or ‘naggy’ whenever she tried to lead her band. Alex’s palpable indignation manifests in the words, “It doesn’t mean shit”, and the structure, the opening razorblade riff and the following guitar solo marks ‘Dogbone’ out as their most bombastic track yet. She barks in the face of her adversaries, eventually claiming victory when she howls “you’re no-one.” This outright refusal to acknowledge her insecurities drowns out their voices once and for all.
