After their international signing to EMI, South Africa’s proudest electronic export Goldfish are well and truly back with their new single Washing Over Me – and it’s destined to be a smasher.
‘Washing over me is taking Goldfish in a whole new direction’ says Dave on the phone from Miami where the Fishies had just finished playing their set at Miami Winter Music Conference. ‘It’s definitely got a more Rock-ish vibe and features Steve Sparrow on vocals from the UK Indie Rock sensation Morning Parade…we’ve played it out live a couple of times including today and it’s crazy to see the crowd reaction!’
‘We recorded the vocals in Amsterdam at the legendary Wisseloord Studios, known as the Abbey Road of Europe’ chimes in Dom. ‘Everyone from the Chili Peppers to Snoop Dog has recorded there so we were in very good company…and it was great to work with Steve Sparrow as he was absolutely perfect for the track. We’re so proud of this single, we’ve got an amazing team working with us at EMI and it’s definitely the start of the next level for Goldfish!’
No stranger to South Africa, Goldfish hold numerous SAMA awards, Platinum sales and a massive following in their home country. The electronic duo are also breaking out across Europe, having just sold out their own 6000 capacity Festival ‘Goldfish Outdoor’ in Amsterdam months in advance, as well as confirmed residents for DJ Megastar David Guetta’s F*** Me I’m Famous night at Pacha Ibiza for the second year running. With slew of headline festival bookings across Europe including Extrema and Rock in Rio Madrid, the Fishies are looking forward to a very busy European Summer.
