Chicagoans Gretta Rochelle and Jack Armondo have been making music together for almost as long as they’ve been romantically involved.
After playing in a “sex rock” band together for a few years, they launched My Gold Mask as a more electronics-based, pop-oriented project that over the past half decade has found a sweet spot between Siouxsie & the Banshees and Robyn. After last year’s Leave Me Midnight LP the band–now a trio thanks to the addition of drummer James Andrew–is focusing on the release of a series of singles recorded by metal guru Sanford Parker. The latest, “Explode,” is heavier than anything they’ve ever recorded, filled with dense synthesizer tones and a relentlessly pounding drum part, but with plenty of big hooks the song can gracefully slide into your brain and wedge itself there.
