Paint It Golden By Lydia

5/5-I think everyone should just go and buy this album on Itunes. Every song on this album is unbelievably addicting.

(About The Band)

Lydia is an indie rock band from Gilbert, Arizona that was formed in 2003. In 2010, the band took a year-long hiatus because of a fight that was between Steve McGraw and Leighton Antelman (the two people who started the band). In the end, before their last tour it was announced that Lydia would be breaking up. Luckily, it was only a hiatus instead. Lydia has released one EP and four albums-This December, it’s one more and I’m free, Illuminate, Assailants, and Paint it golden.  Current band members are-Leighton Antelman (Vocals) and Craig Taylor (drums, percussions).

There is honestly nothing that I don’t like or love about this album. The only thing I hate is the fact that I didn’t buy this album when it was in my hands!

Leighton has one of those voices that just put you into a good mood without even trying. You just feel the need to sway back and forth along with his incredibly sexy voice. Craig Taylor did an amazing beat for all of the songs which keeps the momentum and melody of Leighton’s voice together and easy to listen to. Even though I love all of these songs, the ones I am currently listening to on reply is, I’ll Bite You, Seasons, Best Nights, and Ghosts. This album is truly just a fun one that shows the easy, laid back tunes Lydia is known for. These songs really are ‘Songs to move to”.
