Guitar-pop phenomenon Posh Chocolates are a Manchester based trio that delve into their own roots in their latest single “Gold Tongue”. Guitar-driven synth pop is a hit within the industry at the moment with artists such as The 1975 soaring into the realm of stardom. Screaming with personality, their latest release glows with originality and is quite the statement. Front-man and producer Christian Ellery began the trio from an unassuming Spinningfields apartment with a view of the city.
“Gold Tongue” is inspired by the synth age of the 80’s and features frequent vibrant synths as well as strong percussive elements. With a nudge toward Hot Chip, the track is produced so that the vocals sit comfortably on the top. On the track, Posh Chocolates had this to say: “Contrary to the listener’s first impression of the rather lyrically unambiguous hook, Gold Tongue is a ballad discussing a connection with another person on an empathetic level. Based upon shared experiences, such as struggles with mental health and loss, I found myself suddenly at ease knowing that I had found myself a parallel to confide in. “I know how you feel, mate.” said everyone, ever. But to finally find someone who you truly trust has shared the same trauma as you is extremely cathartic”
