Set List

  • "New Religion"
  • "Like A Shadow"

There's something undeniably catchy about the music of Gold Connections. The band's founder, singer and songwriter Will Marsh has a special talent for lyrics; you can hear it in the immediacy of the first song you're going to hear Gold Connections perform called "New Religion," as well as the slow burner song "Like A Shadow."

Will started the band back at the College of William & Mary when he connected with Car Seat Headrest's Will Toledo. They played on each other's records, but eventually Marsh went his own way with Gold Connections. The band's latest EP, Like a Shadow, certainly impresses.

A note on the timing: We taped this session a few months back when we visited our member station WNRN in Richmond, Va., for our Sense of Place series. Will and the band were fantastic, so let's get into it. Enjoy this live recording of Gold Connections, recorded live for World Cafe.
