- Shout Louder common goldfish 3:14
Tottenham’s common goldfish recently made his debut with ‘Feel The Fuzz’, the fuzzed-out ode to 90s indie-rock that was supported by Clash Magazine, Joy of Violent Movement, LDN Magazine and more. The UK artist’s sophomore track is ‘Shout Louder’, which is common goldfish’s answer to an elevating summer track as we all embrace getting back to normal.
“I created the beat using a mix of 90’s break samples. Quite quickly I had the bass line and piano. I’d been watching the “Get Back” documentary, which definitely inspired the vocals and psychedelic guitar sounds. The track was making me think of being outside with friends in the sun, and the lyrics try to capture this.”
Produced in his studio in Tottenham, North London, ‘Shout Louder’ is a celebration of self-expression that aims to take listeners on a journey. From the cosmic, groove-laden beginnings on through to the bouncing piano line it captures the euphoric feeling of shared connections you get amongst large groups of people through music, whether it’s at a festival, live gig or club night.
“I love the idea of energy flowing through a crowd. It’s completely intangible, but yet there’s nothing more real to everyone in that moment,” shares common goldfish
common goldfish made a name for himself on the London gig circuit, performing at everywhere from Peckham Audio to Luna Lounge to The Salisbury, as well as the obligatory busking days along the canals of Hackney Wick. While he has used his own distinctive blend to create a sound with no limits, the artist cites the likes of Stone Roses, Primal Scream and Tame Impala as key influences.
While ‘Shout Louder’ is the sophomore release as common goldfish, under the moniker J Love, his production and songwriting credits have received critical acclaim across a number of big hitting publishers including Mixtape Madness, New Wave Magazine and GRM Daily.
