Gold & Youth have announced their sophomore record Dream Baby, slated for November 5 2021 release through Paper Bag Records, and shared it's first single The Worse The Better. A bright, uptempo alt-pop melancholy underscores Lyall's croons through early 21st century malaise on the verse: “As our beauty starts to fade in our grand decay/The boujie boys high-fiving us all through one big last parade.” The chorus bursts with dazzling synths and glittery guitars beneath Lyall’s conviction: “The worse the better is coming our way!” On the track, Gold & Youth say, "The Worse the Better is a fun little bop about water-sliding into the abyss. A woozy anthem for the downwardly mobile about the crushing banality of evil rendered by the acid vat of late-stage capitalism as we work dead-end jobs at the end of history and pray for some technocratic savior to build us a biodome on Mars. Loud and fast and then sputtering and wheezing, kind of like a dream machine going kaputt as it runs out of gas. Truly the feel-bad hit of the summer! Tell your friends."
