Channeling sensual 1960s soul and 1990s R&B with a Tina Turner-esque swagger, The Gold Setting are preparing to release their debut Volume and Tone EP on April 7th. In anticipation, frontwoman Liza Colby sat down with Okayplayer to discuss the recording process, her inspiration, and obstacles faced in the industry. The Gold Setting also shared new single “Gimme Your Love” alongside the piece.
Volume and Tone boasts a fluid cast of all-stars including Todd Simon (Ghostface Killah, Sharon Jones, Lily Allen), Grammy-nominated Adam Berg (Decoders), and Richard Rudolph (Stevie Wonder, Minnie Riperton, A Tribe Called Quest, 2Pac, Chaka Kahn, En Vogue). The band previously revealed the groovy love anthems “Being Without You” and “My Love.” Organic yet electrified, the four-track EP was recorded using a blend of old school 50s/60s techniques and modern technology, bringing out the authentic tones of the instruments yet delivering an explosive sound.
