Louie Rubio’s debut single “Heart of Gold” is a refreshing and uplifting anthem that encourages listeners to keep going and not give up on their dreams. As a feel-good antidote to the melancholic feelings that can arise from the never-ending over-stimulating burnout, the bittersweet catchy hook is both infectious and empowering.
The DIY ethos of Louie’s upcoming album is evident in “Heart of Gold”, as he recorded, produced, and mixed the track with real instruments and analog gear in his LA studio. The result is a cohesive and fresh personal sound that layers his smooth vocal textures over upbeat guitars and yacht grooves, reminiscent of Tame Impala meets Steve Lacy with a dash of Pharrell.
Louie’s experience as an artist and multi-instrumentalist who has earned 70m streams from his previous acts on Atlantic and Interscope shines through in “Heart of Gold”. Collaborations with artists like Nile Rodgers and Chicago have earned him praise from Vice, Complex and Variety, and his upcoming album promises to be a collection of infectious bangers that give listeners the best, most weightless feeling.
“Heart of Gold” is a fantastic first single from Louie Rubio’s upcoming album. The track is both catchy and empowering, and it’s clear that Louie has poured his heart and soul into every aspect of the album’s creation. If “Heart of Gold” is any indication, Louie’s independent debut promises to be a must-listen for fans of uplifting music.
