Liverpool band Gone Camping just dropped their first single, Paint Me In Gold, about someone who is self-absorbed and eager for the recognition they think they should get. It’s an Indie Pop bop.

The song has a hidden irony, but it always grasps perfectly the ugliness of toxic and self-centred relationships. This is actually quite exciting.

The refrain of this song is so catchy, it will certainly get stuck in your head for a while. Paint Me In Gold has an awesome dance vibe that no one can resist.

A surprising sound with many different tones and textures that combine to create an immersive atmosphere. The fuzzy guitar totally stands out and goes perfectly with the twangy rhythmic guitar parts, spaced and super tight and sharp drums that give the song that head-bobbing, foot-tapping groove.

4 college friends in A-level music class got together one day to talk and ended up forming a band which they named Gone Camping. Tom Wharton takes care of the guitar and voice, Sam Mellor of the main guitar, Owen Martin on drums and Curtis Powell on bass.

After buzzing crowds everywhere with their hit song Paint Me In Gold, Gone Camping worked with renowned producer Tayte Nickols at Mad Fox Manchester to take things a step higher.

They claim that their music is inspired by Peach Pit, Inhaler, Mac DeMarco, Nothing but Thieves, Two Door Cinema Club and The Strokes.
