Golden Veins – New Single: “I’ll Take The Bullet For You”

A sigh to a scream, “I’ll Take The Bullet For You”, the fourth single, is an anthemic, guitar-laden plea for love and understanding, no matter the cost. The b-side, “Zenith/Nadir,” is an atmospheric instrumental that will take you from the dark side of the moon through a black hole and back in three minutes and change.

Also included with this single is a stunning remix by Cleo’s Apartment, as well as fabulous artwork by Brent Houzenga.

Listen to all 3 tracks from this single here.

Ps- Watch the “Zenith/Nadir” video created by Natalie Mirsky.

And a reminder to those of you who might not know what Golden Veins Singles Club is:

The first recordings from Golden Veins won’t be released as a traditional album, but will instead take the form of a year-long digital project dubbed the Golden Veins Singles Club. Every month, a new “digital 45” will be released, featuring two brand-new songs as well as a remix of the a-side.
In addition to purchasing singles individually, there are also four membership options available, which offer additional bonus materials and merchandise.
