New band fronted by Eric Richter (Christie Front Drive, Antarctica, The 101)

Already confirmed for appearances at DenverFest III and CMJ 2007


Brooklyn, NY — Golden City announces the release of its debut EP, entitled “1,” available now as a free download at MySpace and Virb. Recorded in forty-eight hours by the renowned producer Ian Love (Burn, Cardia, Rival Schools) and made available the following day, the “1” EP showcases the singing and songwriting of Eric Richter, formerly of such acclaimed bands as Christie Front Drive, Antarctica, and The 101, on guitar and vocals, with Jim Lehnhoff (guitar), Chris Peterson (bass), and Jeremy Jones (drums), also of The 101.


The “1” EP highlights the band’s penchant for distinctive songwriting supported by memorable choruses peppered with intertwining guitar lines. “Gray” starts off the EP, its interlaced guitars and vocal refrain sticking immediately in the listener’s head. “Diamond Suits” follows, recalling the sonic luster of Richter’s past bands while suggesting how bright Golden City’s future promises to be. The EP’s last song, “Cars in Space,” with its swelling harmonies, serves as an ideal finale to the much-anticipated first three selections from Golden City.

On the strength of the “1” EP Golden City is already confirmed for appearances at DenverFest III (playing its final night, September 2) and at this year’s CMJ Festival (October 16–20, date TBD). The “1” EP signals the arrival of a band from which much more is already eagerly expected.
