LOUD LUXURY & FRANK WALKER and STEPHEN PUTH, “Like Gold”
I’ve got to admit, I’ve definitely taken a liking to what they called themselves on Instagram as a “new boy band”. Canadians Loud Luxury collaborate this time with Toronto’s Frank Walker and Puth the younger (Stephen) for a darker deep house release called “Like Gold”. It’s a welcome change for Andrew and Joe from Loud Luxury after a number of duly successful house tracks like “Body” and “Aftertaste”, and Frank Walker continues with his successes following his concurrently charting release with Steve Aoki called “Imagine”. After having some of his recent singles remixed for clubs, it’s great to hear Stephen Puth’s voice in the electronic dance setting proper. It totally suits the alluring, mysterious vibe of “Like Gold”, probably Loud Luxury’s darkest sounding club-oriented song since their cover of “Fill Me In” from a few years back. “Like Gold” does not disappoint for fans of any of these increasingly accomplished performers.
