Mikal Cronin shares new single “ii) Gold” — listen

on March 10, 2015, 12:00pm

San Francisco garage rocker Mikal Cronin returns with his new record, MCIII, on May 5th via Merge Records. The 11-track LP is split into two halves, with the latter part being a six-track concept suite about Cronin’s time spent attending school in the Pacific Northwest. Today, he’s shared a first listen at this mini album within an album in the form of “ii) Gold”.

Coming early in the suite, Cronin is just trying to do his best to adapt to his new surroundings. The chords rattle and shake but drive onward, like a boy who’s far from pleased with his situation but doing his best to accept what he cannot change. “Walk the river of gold,” Cronin sings, talking himself up. “Walk the river of gold/ Let your feet sink in deep/ Watch the demons take hold.” Take a listen below.

Cronin previously revealed MCIII’s life-affirming lead single “Made My Mind Up” and a set of Californian and European tour dates; find all that here.
