A trip to Trondheim in autumn 2018 led to the unearthing of Parade, The Gold Tips debut album.

Not a moment wasted. It was recorded, it is said, in an old barn in the middle of nowhere, with a generator, a brass section and a long way back to the nearest town.
From the Northern European wilds comes an idiosyncratic soul shouting, heart-breaking testament.
It's the sound of 2019, echoing down through the ages. Preach, brothers and sisters.
