Gold Connections – “Isabel”

Gold Connections’ Will Marsh went to school with Car Seat Headrest’s Will Toledo at the College Of William & Mary, where Toledo produced and recorded Marsh’s debut EP as Gold Connections, which is seeing release later this month via Fat Possum. We’ve already posted two tracks from it — “New Religion” and “Faith In Anyone” — and today we get a third, the 6-minute “Isabel.” “‘Isabel’ is not a song about a girl, but a blurred portrait of the circus we call love,” Marsh said in a press release. “It took two years to write because I kept on finding new bizarre angles…If Isabel is a girl then she’s parading somewhere out of view.” Listen to it below.
