Nothing short of a viral sensation, “Aftergold” by Big Wild remains one of the biggest releases to come out of ODESZA’s Foreign Family label. Now five years on and over 104 million worldwide streams later, the track is getting a second airing as part of a new EP.
Along with a limited edition vinyl, you can hear both the vocal and instrumental versions alongside a Red Rocks live recordings and two inspiring remixes from obli and Hanz. Both taking on the original and serving up dreamy, immersive cuts, these aren’t to be missed.
Big Wild reflects: “It’s hard for me to believe ‘Aftergold’ came out 5 years ago. I remember working on this in my bedroom and on the road while I was opening for ODESZA. I was struggling to name the song and it was Harrison [of ODESZA] who recommended ‘Aftergold.’ As soon as I heard that name, I knew it was the one. Amazing to think how much these few minutes of music impacted my life and for that I’m thankful.”
