Tempest Gold

Location: Portland

Little Beasts, the debut record from Portland solo artist Chris El-korek, offers music lovers a return to the melodic rock of the ’80s and early ’90s. Under the moniker Tempest Gold, El-korek burrows into metaphor and symbolism, the subconscious, misunderstood youth, and observations of how life depends on devouring other life. With a lost-in-time quality, Little Beasts’ thoughtful lyrics and hooky guitars permeate its songs that sound like they were written decades ago. For fans of Echo & The Bunnymen, Love and Rockets and Robyn Hitchcock, find Little Beasts on vinyl at record stores in Portland, Seattle and online here.
