Drum is the bold second album from Gold Class. Recorded at Melbourne’s Head Gap studios / Tropical Fuck Storm Studios and co-produced by Gareth Liddiard of The Drones, “Drum” sees Gold Class explore new territory in both songwriting and sonics.

On Gold Class’ second LP, Adam Curley is punchy, the music percussive. “We were beaten, but I still feel a thump,” he hollers, amidst Evan Purdey’s knotty guitar scrawl on the relentless “We Were Never Too Much”. And Drum duly delivers a thump, producer Gareth Liddiard’s stripped-down setting letting the propulsive rhythm section push towards the foreground. There’s nothing groundbreaking here, but the quartet boast heart and wit, sounding committed to their cause. “Weave the blows/Like a boxer on tiptoe,” Curley bellows in “Thinking of Strangers”, recalling Morrissey’s lyrical pugilists as the song drags Smithsy jangle into a dark alley.
