Lothario is the first offering from Gold Spectacles in a year of studio-hibernation. A nostalgic spanish guitar provides the foundation to the track with chopped up guitar riffs, a lazy upright piano and bells sampled from a local church.
To me, this is real art. Gold Spectacles have a unique sound. They create what they want to create. The quality is always high.
Gold Spectacles share interesting insights. It has something philosophical to it. Lothario represents a person who, beyond their kind exterior, is not entirely trustworthy. Are they playing you or is what you see, what you get? We all have a facade or mask to a certain extent but with a Lothario, you’re never sure whether they have an ulterior motive. Maybe one day, they’ll be silent and gone and you’ll be left unravelled like you never really knew them at all.
