Minneapolis is usually know for being cold, but as the music scene there intensifies, it's beginning to be known for stellar indie bands like Solid Gold. We can't stop listening to the cheeky synth-pop trio and their most recent album, "Bodies of Water."
The repeat-worthy tracks are sharp but full of smooth, ethereal melodies that float around and consume your head. The name Solid Gold may seem a tad presumptuous (or more likely intentionally ironic) for a band that remains unsigned, but the threesome continuously proves both on their albums and live that they are more than capable of such a weighty title.
"Bodies of Water" is available for purchase from iTunes for $10, or check out the band's site for a quick listen and a list of tour dates.
