Released on November 20th, Ruth Brosnan’s high energy, 80’s-inspired electronic single is sure to make everyone feel just like a superhero.
Dedicated to all those feeling the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, whether it’s the front line and key workers, or those really feeling the isolation brought on by restrictions, ‘Electric Gold’ is catchy, feel good at its core and sure to brighten your day.
The dance-pop track is filled with inspiring, relatable lyrics and accompanied by an animated music video which takes the metaphor even further, picturing various people from all walks of life as said heroes.
Not only does this drive home the meaning of the single, but the video also creates a sense of community connection, as Ruth’s character sings alongside other everyday heroes about this vast shared, and strange experience we’re living through.
“It’s about realising that we are all our own heroes and will overcome these tough times and emerge together stronger. It is a shot of adrenaline to all of those obeying the rules so far to keep on going and a thank you/acknowledgement to frontline staff.” – Ruth Brosnan
As topical songs go, ‘Electric Gold’ is a bouncy, heartfelt thank you that will surely lift your spirits without taking itself too seriously, as well as a solid introduction to the talented abilities of Ruth Brosnan.
