My Gold Mask


My Gold Mask (Chicago)
Post Punk/Goth Pop

If returning MPMF champs My Gold Mask were a band 35 years ago, the members would have been hanging out with Robert Smith and Siouxsie Sioux and heavily courted by the 4AD label. The group, which formed five years ago, has an entrancing, progressive sound full of dark but ear-grabbing melodies, crafty percussion elements, the engrossing vocals of Gretta Rochelle and an echoing backdrop that is spacious and atmospheric even when in full “rock out” mode. My Gold Mask is following up last year’s magnificent Leave Me Midnight album with a series of digital singles.
