HUSBANDS is truly a band of the 21st century. Danny and Wil are a pair of friends who have been making pop music via internet exchange while life pulls them in various directions. Wil sheds quite a bright and personal light on their band formation and music creation on this page that is worth a read. “Stay Gold” is the beginning of an album of the same name that starts a concerted effort in a specific direction: delicious, jangly pop that can be conveyed live as well as it can recorded. Packed tightly, the sunshine-filled layers of the tune charge forward with the same hopeful urgency. Bits of synth and soft vocals harmonize and accent the lackadaisical melody in passing verses and an elevated chorus. It’s quintessential summer pop that glistens with the promise of more lovely things to come. Golden Year is out July 2nd.
