Debut – Press Reviews!

“They have a broad range, with a nod to the economy of pop songs in the songwriting that has paid off.” (Christine Heise, Tip-Magazin, April 2013)

“The thunderous climax of their piece “Boys Are Heroes” is like getting Bond’s pistol put to your chest!” (Rolling Stone, May 2013)

“Louise Gold is a timeless vocalist who knows how to convey both lightness and tragedy in equal measure.” (Radio Eins Berlin, Album Tip)

“Even those who aren’t necessarily attuned to retro will appreciate Debut by Louise Gold and Company.” (Sound & Image, April 2013)

“Polyphonic to the pinnacle in one take.” (Jazzthetik, April/May 2013)

“Debut offers wonderful music with a flair of the past that can successfully measure up to the present.” (Jazz thing, April/May 2013)

“Whoever has ever lain awake the whole night because “Tillerman & Comrade” was haunting them, or because they couldn’t get the “Boys Are Heroes” refrain out of their heads, cannot help but notice that Debut is nothing less than a handful of songs that have already become classics.” (Victoriah Szirmai, Fairaudio, April 2013)

“It wouldn’t be surprising if Louise Gold & The Quarz Orchestra were themselves to become a part of music history.” (magistrix, February 2013)

New Sounds!

We recorded our new Songs in a Berlin studio that exclusively uses equipment from the 1950s and which charms music onto tape using methods from that time period: together with the entire band. That’s music in real time, nowadays a rare gift. It fits to our way of making music. The music happens. Before and after there is space for thinking and considering, but while it is happening, it simply flows.

Hush! Hush! Sweet Baby

We shot the Video in a circus tent in Berlin on a very hot day in June 2011. Louise wanted Sabine Steyer to direct it because she saw her recent work in documentary and liked it very much.
