Back in November 2008, Minneapolis 4-piece Solid Gold released their amazingly addictive debut album Bodies of Water, which to our disappointment didn’t receive much airplay here in Australia.

In the bands own words; “Bodies of Water is a sweeping epic that spans love, loss, redemption and the nature of the human experience”
The boys were finally recognised in Australia back in 2009 when the below track ‘Get Over It’ scored a placing on Modular; Leave Them All Behind 3 compilation:
