Stay Gold – Netflix & Chill
The newly formed WordUp Collective is attempting to bring together a new breed of young Irish hip-hop, urban and R&B performers, producers and musicians. They count AikJ, Damola, Young Phantom and Katie Laffan among them. Stay Gold received praise for their set at new music festival Hard Working Class Heroes last October and the title of their new single couldn’t be more of the moment. This is R&B meets alternative rock meets pop in one go.
Supported by an atmospheric R&B production, the sound of Stay Gold’s brand new single is a refreshing beacon of light on the Irish music scene.
A pulsing hip-hop single that grows into a dramatically set finale, ‘Netflix and Chill’ is a song about the early stages of love.
Brought into focus by the group’s deft lyrical touches and turns of phrase the song paints a relatable story from beginning to end.
