New Album On Grace & Dignity Out 10 February 2023
Today, Benjamin Woods shares a new song from his upcoming GOLDEN DREGS album, On Grace & Dignity. Following early single ‘American Airlines’, ‘Sundown Lake’ is a coming-of-age song full of nostalgia where bandleader Benjamin Woods – joined by Issie Armstrong on backing vocals – muses on hazy memories of teenage life in Cornwall.
‘Sundown Lake’ - the GOLDEN DREGS
Founded in Falmouth, Cornwall in 2013, the GOLDEN DREGS is the project of Benjamin Woods, songwriter and producer currently residing in South London. From piano-man, bar-band, baritone karaoke-crooner to an all-singing-all-dancing seven piece, all guises of the GOLDEN DREGGS serve as a platform for Woods’s different musical output. Under the moniker he has released two albums in quick succession, Lafayette (2018) and Hope Is For The Hopeless (2019).
Praise for Hope Is For The Hopeless:
"He sings in a snarled baritone, borrowing as much from Chris Isaak as Lou Reed, and no matter how fully he populates his songs they always sound wonderfully lonely." - The FADER
“Like witty sardonic gunslinger's ghost pouring wise-guy lyrics from the bottom of a mile-deep well. Woods drawls his woes in a baritone mixing Lee Hazlewood and The Magnetic Field's Stephin Merritt. The title track glimmers with optimism, but all the tracks will stay on your mind" – MOJO ****
