Stream: Gold Celeste share shimmering psych pop of “The Wonder of Love”

Wonder of LoveHaving recently released their debut album The Glow, Norwegian psych pop band Gold Celeste follow up with a new single, "The Wonder of Love". Stream the track below.

A strong showcase of the band's shimmering psych sound, "The Wonder of Love" is the trio's most emotional single to date, and comes just a couple of months after the release of their debut full length. The track itself is a real testament to the nature of love at its very best; with tingly guitars, it's a moving and complex song that marks the next exciting step for this new Oslo based band.

Gold Celeste is Simen Hallset on bass and vocals, Petter Andersen on drums and Eirik Fidjeland on guitar, synth and vocals. They all met at an Arts and Music college in Trondheim, Norway. It was the groups shared musical influences (Sigur Rós, Radiohead, Deerhunter, My Bloody Valentine and Beach House, to name a few) that brought them together and allowed Gold Celeste to be born.

Simen comments on the album: "The record’s title comes from the glow every human being is carrying, whether they're aware of it or not. There is no doubt, what so ever, when looking at the history of mankind that we're able to do the most atrocious and evil acts, and these acts will change both people and societies as a whole. What we are, and might be capable of. Our potential is of both being infinitely hateful, and infinitely loving. This is the glow."

The Glow is out now on Riot Factory. Find out more about Gold Celeste on Facebook and stream "The Wonder of Love" below:
