Napoleon Gold remains consistent with his delivery, serving up the second appetizer for his upcoming LP, a single entitled “Love Don’t Cut Me Down.” The song features up-and-coming indie-pop singer Haiva ru, who complements an infectiously groovy orchestration of percussion. “Love Don’t Cut Me Down” immediately echoes the ethereal atmosphere charged by the California-sun that Gold teased with his previous single, “Lucid,” which featured Jalen Santoy and Madge.
This single serves up a refreshing bounce accompanied by feel-good lyrics that delve into the ever-complex ideas of young love. Similar to some of the funkier synth-pop work done by the Parisian duo Daft Punk, this release is an undeniable Summer anthem. With expertly manipulated vocals that twist and turn through the effervescent synth leads, it is layered immaculately. Gold proves once again that he’s put in his 10,000 hours of digital audio production with powerful sound artistry.
Gold says in previous interviews that his upcoming project is meant to pay tribute to much of his childhood exposure to music and early inspirations. The timelessness of those songs that inspired him is echoed in the projects first two singles which prove timeless in themselves as well. It’s safe to say that we’ll all be able to tap back into Summer ‘19 for a long time thanks to Napoleon Gold.
