Premiere: Chris Gale “There’s a Word”

Los Angeles-based Minnesotan, Chris Gale is preparing to release his third single, “There’s a Word.” Surviving the Golden Age is excited to premiere the track.

Beginning with surface noise, vocals, and percussion, “There’s a Word” sounds like it could be an outtake from the Microphones’ The Glow Pt. 2 sessions. The lo-fi recording hiss and crackles to the big chorus, a sampling of horns that sounds like it was lifted from a Disney VHS blasted from SD TV speakers. All the while Chris Gale’s steady voice, which sounds a lot like Lou Barlow, guides you through.
