Les Gold

Portland indie rock outfit Les Gold was founded by frontman Jenson Tuomi and guitarist Tim Kaye, and consists of bassist Jake Jarvis, drummer Alexander Geiszler, and lead guitarist Pete Abraham. The band has cultivated a sound that mixes homegrown Northwest indie rock with elements of folk rock, dream pop, desert rock, surf, and other influences. Les Gold showcases catchy, poppy melodies and tones layered over unique vocal harmonies and often macabre lyrics - crafting a sound that's been described as 'gloom disco' and 'bummer fun'.

Since releasing their first EP ' More Silver' in late 2018, Les Gold has toured the west coast, opened for major artists like Deep Sea Diver, Horse Feathers, Hot Flash Heatwave, and more while expanding their reach to hundreds of thousands of listeners across North America and Europe. As the band has grown and developed their sound, they've stayed true to their roots and remained pioneers of the 'bummer fun' genre. With a strong cast, sponsorships from local legends like Benson Amps, 64 Audio, Secret Aardvark Hot Sauce, the band has continued to grow in popularity - releasing their Sophomore EP 'The Gloom Room' in late 2021 and receiving immediate acclaim from major outlets like Earmilk, Under the Radar, Portland Monthly, and more. In 2023, Les Gold prepares to release their debut album.
