STL GLD “Extra” Is Perfect Enough For the Ears


“Extra” juice comes from STL GLD

STL GLD shares “Extra” and recorded entirely from inside an exhibit in Salem, MA (Plummer Hall at PEM). The track comes paired with a mini-documentary on the making of the song, cramming three days’ worth of work into a 18-minute sprint.

“Plummer Hall never had any intentions of hip-hop being a component inside of it; or even just Black people being inside of it at all,”  says Moe Pope, STL GLD’s lyricist.

“I felt that we were welcomed by PEM to do something different, and that’s the thing that feels new and big; being welcomed and not being tasked to create anything ‘socially aware’ or addressing injustices; but to simply be creative in the ways that come naturally to us, just like any other artist.”

Formed in 2014 by Moe Pope and producer The Arcitype, STL GLD’s powerful message and exhilarating live shows earned them reputation as one the most exciting bands to come out of New England. On the surface, they are a Hip Hop band.

However, through their performances, STL GLD blends many genres. There are elements of Hip Hop, Rock, Punk, and Cinematic Orchestra together for an unforgettable experience.

Because of this, STL GLD are winners of the 2018 Boston Music Awards “Live Artist of the Year” and “Boston’s Best Band” by Improper Bostonian.

Their sophomore album ‘Torch Song’ (BMAs “Album of the Year” in 2017) paved the way for an exciting year for the band; getting to share the stage with the likes of Eminem, Khalid, and The Roots.

STL GLD’s latest album, ‘The New Normal’ continued the band’s evolution, allowing them to set new precedents; with collaborations with the Museum of Fine Arts and the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
