BLACKGOLD Team Up With Hyro The Hero For That ‘Old School Sound’

BLACKGOLD have collaborated with US rapper Hyro The Hero for a track that revels in the ‘Old School Sound’.

The new single is typical of BLACKGOLD’s melding of rock and hip-hop to bring something unique, and this collaboration with the Houston-born rapper sees them delve into the sound of their earlier influences.

Have a listen to the new track via the playfully animated video below.

Speaking of the new track, BLACKGOLD have explained their approach to the song, saying:

“This track was all about recreating the vibe you would get from a Beastie Boys track & video. 

“Rock music can be so serious and bands like them remind us it’s ok to have fun with it and it still be real and to team up with Hyro on this was a vibe.”

Hyro The Hero, meanwhile, has added:

“We def took it back to the Old School with ‘Old School Sound’. I was excited to be a part of this with BLACKGOLD because it honours the sound of hip hop in the past with that punk rock style. 

“Definitely an exciting song for this vintage era you can repeat over and over.”

Despite only launching in early 2022, BLACKGOLD have had a whirlwind year and have now announced their debut headline show on May 10, 2024 at The Dome in London. 

Tickets are on sale now, and can be bought from here.
