The new Paola Suhonen directed video arrives in time for a SXSW appearance

The latest cut from New Silver Girl’s s/t debut album, Love Is Like A Goldmine works as a calling card for the kind of Urban rock n roll representative of the album as a whole. Produced by Gordon Raphael (The Strokes) and recorded in Berlin’s famed Hansa studios, Love Is Like A Goldmine is released digitally on the 13th March, as NSG perform an acoustic show on the same day at this year’s SXSW Festival in Austin, USA. 

Love Is Like A Goldmine’ come with a music video by Paola Suhonen, of which New Silver Girl frontman Olli Happonen tells us, “‘Love is Like a Goldmine’ presents the darker side of storytelling and of the artist’s repertoire. Influenced by the surrealism of Buñuel and Lorca and some swinging sixties rock and roll innocence, the song tells the tragic story of a small town boy trying to break free from the chains of his homelands.”

“Of course, a great LP never works if you’re not willing to differentiate, so you get softer numbers like “Tennessee” and “Alms,” or groovier rockers like “Starlight City.” It’s an album that’s all over the map, but in the best of ways, turning and exploring within the confines of these ten tracks; it sounds like a best of rock n’ roll soundtrack. ” Austin Town Hall

“For their debut long player, the Finnish four-piece proves equally adept with heavy rock riffs and the more poppy, glammy side of indie rock.” When You Motor Away

“New Silver Girl have an innate sense and gift for Rock and Roll. This is evidently obvious just through listening to the first three minutes of Love is Like a Goldmine, the first song on their eponymous debut album.” It starts with a birthstone…
