A Flower (That Will Get Stuck) In Your Head

LA singer/songwriter John Gold, or as he likes to put it “writer-songsinger,” recently released his debut album A Flower In Your Head on Vagrant Records. A Flower winds electronic sound effects around an acoustic backbone and confessional journal-esque lyrics. Gold says of the album, “It’s become my own personal manifesto. In the past few years I’ve sort of changed the way I think about things. I’ve decided that if I’m gonna sing the same things over and over for years, better to reach for the good that is now and will be tomorrow rather than report on the past.”

You might recognize Gold’s music from the series of music placements he’s achieved . Gold’s song “Honeymade” was recently featured on MTV‘s Teen Wolf, while “August Vail” was heard on 16 and Pregnant. Past songs of Gold’s have also been heard on shows like Weeds and commercials for companies like Nike and Levi’s.

To support A Flower In Your Head, Gold will be playing a short residency in June at The Rotary Room at Little Temple in Los Angeles. While his June 14th and June 21st dates have already passed, you can catch the last night of his residency this upcoming Tuesday, June 28th.

John Gold | Thursday

For a taste of Gold’s music, listen to “Thursday.” It showcases his love of substance over structure and his ridiculous talent for creating what might be the catchiest ending to songs ever. It’s a charming song about eager anticipation that would make any girl’s heart skip a beat. Gold says of the song, “I’m gonna see you this Saturday and I can’t wait, so I’m writing you a song on Thursday night about seeing you.”

Here are the details on Gold’s residency:

June 28 | Rotary Room @ Little Temple | 4519 Santa Monica Boulevard Los Angeles, CA 90029 | 8:30pm | $8| 21+
