Utah’s Andrew Goldring Captivates With New Single “Cosmic Dance”
Hailing from Salt Lake City, Utah, singer/songwriter Andrew Goldring has a deeply emotive, sonic style that’s perfect for easy listening on these final days of winter. Goldring’s new single “Cosmic Dance” is the dawn of a new era for the Utah-based songwriter. Self-produced by Goldring and mixed/mastered by Philip Shaw Bova (Feist, Andy Shauf, Bahamas), Andrew’s newest sounds are both fresh and familiar. Rooted in classic songwriting influences such as Neil Young and Ryan Adams, Goldring steps out of the singer/songwriter comfort zone, painting a lush soundscape with lo-fi vocals, fuzzy guitar leads, and dreamy Rhodes piano.
Cosmic Dance is a smoldering ballad that evokes a sense of nostalgia while also perpetuating an almost psychedelic appeal. Goldring’s brooding production style speaks to the soul of any true alternative rock lover. With his authenticity and natural gravitas, Goldring definitely has a promising future as an indie artist.
After fronting two different bands over the past five years (Golden Sun, Great Interstate), Andrew decided to step out on his own in 2016 and pursue music as a solo artist. Backed by an evolving group of talented friends, or sometimes by himself with a guitar and bass drum, he’s brought his songs to venues all over the west.
Andrew has shared the stage with Joseph Arthur, Margaret Glaspy, Maps & Atlases, The Appleseed Cast, among other national acts. His music has been featured on NPR affiliate KUER’s RadioWest with Doug Fabrizio, and Utah’s community radio station, KRCL.
In June 2016, Andrew released his last EP, “Heritage,” which SLUG Magazine praised as “the singer-songwriter sound we all know and love — like Elliot Smith, Andy Shauf, or Sparklehorse — while mixing in the coolness and edginess of more recent alternative releases like “Turnover” and “Into It. Over It.” The perfect album to add to your playlist as you transition from the energetic summer to the cozy autumn.”
