Mikal Cronin – “ii) Gold”

California garage-rocker Mikal Cronin will release his third album, MCIII, later this year. We’ve already heard the explosive lead single “Made My Mind Up,” and now he’s shared “ii) Gold.” It’s a cut from the second half of the record, which acts as a concept album about the time he spent feeling alone after moving up to the Pacific Northwest to go to school. It’s easy to tell that the song comes early in the suite, as it still rocks along with a sense of hope and newfound opportunity. “Walk the city alone,” Cronin recounts, and later: “Find the piece of yourself.” Listen below.
