“There is certainly more infinity in the shadow than in celestial space”   Abdelmajid Benjelloun

GENRE:      Elettronica / New Trip hop / Avant pop

GOLD MASS is a physicist-turned-independent-electronic artist and producer.
Her work is a sincere research on the profound meaning of human existence, carried out through rarefied sounds and suspended lyrics.
Her work is a journey of sounds and suggestions that aspires to transport the listener elsewhere, an escape beyond real time and space, through an introspective research. Words speak deeper and deeper, touching universal themes common to all souls moved by desire and fear at the same time.
In June 2021 she released her new EP SAFE, featuring 4 songs written, recorded and produced by GOLD MASS. In 2019, she released her debut album Transitions, produced by Paul Savage (Mogwai).
Her work is arousing a positive interest, highlighting the stubborn nature of the artist as well as the unexpected maturity of her debut. The artist has created a fascinating world around her figure, taking inspiration from her deep love for photography. Sound research and visual suggestion grow in a resonant symbiosis, fueling the aura of mystery and charisma of the artist.

GOLD MASS is a fully independent female project, self-managed and self-funded.

"Evident mastery of atmospheric composition, taking the listener on the most intriguing of journeys."Earthlypleasures blog

"SAFE arouses our attention for its diversified structure, for being a crystal carved with different styles."Nikilzine

"Musically her songs straddle down the road of acts such as Massive Attack and Tricky".ColoRising

"Deeply intimate and confessionary. Always enveloping and hypnotic."She Makes Music UK

"The new Goldfrapp is Italian"Daily Mood

"Transitions is her debut album, but it already sounds extraordinarily authoritative."SentireAscoltare
