Last year, Gabriel Garzón-Montano cemented himself as a formidable presence in the soul music landscape with his debut album Jardin. The wait for a follow up is now over with the release of the single “Golden Wings,” where he takes his effortless musical swagger in new, broader directions. Garzón-Montano covers all performing and production duties on the track that is driven by the crackling drums, propulsive bass synth riffs, and alluring vocal delivery. He crafts an almost spiritual narrative in the lyrics, writing, “Golden wings upon my feet, on clouds I dance / orange sky and deep blue sea, in the palm of my hand.” “Golden Wings” shows that, with his astounding musicianship and purposeful lyrics, Gabriel Garzón-Montano’s music will undoubtedly keep climbing to new heights.
