Tortured in a Good Way

by Maddi Frick

I first heard them performing live at St. Olaf College. Dark blue lights glowed as the electro beat pumped out of the speakers. The band Solid Gold seemed to put my fellow college students in a thumping trance. Solid Gold’s founding members met at the University of Wisconsin Madison and were together for six years before releasing their first full-length album.

Tune in this Thursday at 6pm to hear me talking with lead singer Zac on Centerstage MN about the Twin Cities' music scene and creating their music. Their new EP, Synchronize, includes a cover of Danger Zone, originally from the film Top Gun, an instrumental, and a remix of Synchronize by White Sea. I also look forward to being wowed this weekend at First Avenue in Minneapolis for a Haiti benefit concert. They're socially compassionate too!

Streaming live online at; or 91.7 Grand Rapids, 89.9 Brainerd and 105.3 Bemidji. All interviews are archived at and the show is rebroadcast Sunday mornings at 6.
