Remove My Gold Mask!

In the tradition of the great artistic couples (Fred and Ginger, Gram and Emmylou, Kinski and Herzog) Rochelle and Armondo better known as  My Gold Mask conjure a mood rather than a simple sound or idea. Their music is a part art-pop, part sonic poetry, and part personal chemistry and in a word moody.

Slightly Gothic in their aspirations, My Gold Mask hide behind a veil of sweeping beats, soaring vocals, and an impending sense of doom.  Believe it or not, it's good stuff that might remind you of later period Siouxsie & The Banshees.

The band has recently had several tracks remixed, two of which are below.  They've also been working on their follow up to last years EP and are planning on bring the Mask to a city near you this summer.
