"I can look back and say "I saw them before they were famous" - which always feels good...."

Live, these guys reek of punk and rock influences, delivering their vocals with ferocious energy as their guitarist lets lose and their drummer bangs the shit out his skins. On record their music is simultaneously brash and thoughtful. ' - The Source

Bio

After enjoying overwhelming industry support from the underground up, White Powder Gold are now ready to take their unique sound to the masses, one step at a time. The London-based band – made up of old college friends, Jermaine, Jamie and new member’s Corey and Chris – released their first EP. The EP contains 4 tracks including previous single Can’t Stop Me Now is set for release by Twenty One Records on December 5th 2011.
Described as "council estate indie", the urban-loving BAND aren’t worried about being labeled, as they draw influences from a wide range of musical genres: "We love a range of sounds. The Stooges, Beastie boys, Rage against the Machine, Sizzla, The Stone Roses and house producers/artists like Claude Von Stroke and Daft Punk influence us, but regardless, we always try to come with our own unique vibe, which make’s WPG (White Powder Gold) who we are."
Having already supported GZA of Wu-Tang Clan, and performed at some of London’s most edgy and respected music venues, White Powder Gold are set for some big things in the year to come: "We make the music we love. Sometimes that means hard bass, sometimes it’s a guitar riff, but it always comes from the soul." – Jermaine and Jamie.
Previous single Can't Stop Me Now, garnered the band support from BBC 1 Radio 1, BBC 1Xtra, MTV, Artrocker Magazine, Record Of The Day, among many others. The EP is a continuation of the band’s punk, indie, hip hop, reggae, pop and overall genre defying and unique sound. Consisting of four tracks and two remixes (Lewi White and Marco Del Horno) Rock N Rolla being the lead track, the heavy distorted guitar riff and punchy lyrics, make this band a total breath of fresh air. The White Powder Gold EP provides a space for the listener to vent their angst, punch the air and simultaneously move their hips. This EP is a total must!
The White Powder Gold EP has been released through Twenty One Records on December 5th 2011. For music and live dates please check:
