The ever-talented Richmond indie pop band, Goldrush, will release its new album “Summer Sun” at Gallery5 on Sept. 25. This album comes with a special sun dial designed by local artist Sara Gossett. To celebrate the many good people that help with these situations proceeds from sales of this release will go to a victims of violence fund.
Many of the songs on “Summer Sun” are directly influenced by a violent attack on songwriter Prabir Mehta last year as well as the strengthening of friendships and the love and support of a community following the assault. These songs were all composed during his physical recovery and court cases which consumed the better part of this year. Mehta says this album is the most upbeat group of songs the band has ever worked on and reflects the positive nature of people while facing a painful situation.
