Indie-rock trio Goldpark have returned with their new single, “Covered in Sunshine” today. Carried by bright guitar riffs, groove-infused bass and anthemic percussion, the song is taken from their upcoming sophomore EP. Listen to it now below.
Lead vocalist Wes Hunter expands on the simple yet powerful meaning of the song, saying, “’Covered in Sunshine’ is about the power of stepping outside. All of these problems, anxieties, and fears that have come from a reliance on technology feel a little less heavy when we step into the sunlight. That’s where we realize where ‘real life’ actually lives. Being a ‘part of life’ isn’t being fully connected at all times with the world around us through a viewfinder. It’s being a part of the outside world we forget about so often.”
Goldpark released their debut EP, ‘Goldpark One,’ in August 2021 on Hazel Street Records. Now, after nearly a year of touring around the US with a mix of solo shows, support gigs and festival slots, the trio are ready to share a whole new collection of songs. “[This EP] is special for so many reasons,” they said. “We had the right songs, the right producer, and the right spirit. This body of work is the best representation of who we are and where we are going. We hope this EP makes people smile.”
