Golden Rose Boy

Golden Rose Boy exposes a glitch in the system in new EP "Floppy Disk"

To say 2020 feels like a glitch in the system would not be a stretch of the imagination: it has all the qualities of disruption indeed. Golden Rose Boy, a chiptune artist from Manchester, NH, gets the tone just right in his May release Floppy Disk which takes the synth-arcade sounds we recognize and morphs them into something sinister and entertaining at once. Tracks like “Lofi Music To Die To - Rest” have a cold ambiance to them, robotic, yes, but also very much grounded in a dark type of biological-sounding atmosphere. “A Summoning - The Inevitable” feels like the anthem to the marching parade of your nightmares, it swells and growls in a manner that excites the imagination. Overall the short entry is something bizarre and welcomed, all at once, it fits the mood of the year; Stream “Golden Rose Boy - Victory Lap” below for something outside your comfort zone. - Rene Cobar
