Premiere: Gaston Light “This Side Of The Truth”

Gaston Light (nee Jason Corcoran) is preparing to release his new EP Newport Drive on November 17th. Surviving the Golden Age is excited to premiere his new single, “This Side Of The Truth.” Opening with a reverbed guitar line that sounds like the cousin of the riff from “Everybody Wants to Rule the World,” “This Side of the Truth” is filled with just as many tears and just as many fears. Corcoran calls the song “a response to the current political climate.” The tension is palpable in his voice which is reminiscent of Matt Berninger of the National. When he sings lines like “Tell me what you’re thinking cause I don’t know what is real” and it feels like he is singing the thoughts of a nation.
