Today's Song of the Day, as chosen by John Richards, host of the Morning Show on KEXP, is "Flesh" by Golden Features, from the 2023 album Sisyphus on Foreign Family Collective.
With today's techno-tinged Song of the Day, Australian DJ/producer Golden Features (real name: Thomas Stell) celebrates a city he discovered on tour: Berlin.
"'Flesh' was one of the earlier demos from the album's writing process," he shared in a press statement. "It was a direct response to my time in Berlin and a song that encapsulated everything I fell in love with on my journeys. I wrote it trying to express feelings of being under the weight of an eight-hour session in the rave. Overstimulated, anxious, and completely terrified of facing the real world outside. Finally gathering the courage to call it a night experiencing the surreal shift that is walking out of a windowless dungeon into a beautiful sunrise."
The track can be found on his second, and most recent, LP Sisyphus, which was released via ODESZA's Foreign Family Collective label. No Seattle date has been formally announced yet, but you can drive up to Vancouver, BC to catch Golden Features on Friday, February 9th at Celebrities Nightclub.
