about

If you listen carefully to Goldschatz’s latest single, you can hear the rattle of a railroad car and the crackle of a campfire. The song “North 49” takes us back to the time when tens of thousands of immigrants flocked to Northern Canada. It was there, in the area around the Klondike River, where the last big gold rush took place. The journey was full of hardship; not everyone returned.

The duo Goldschatz tells of an adventurer who leaves everything behind to head north in pursuit of riches and gold. The song is about striking out and the challenges that life poses. Goldschatz gets to the heart of these themes in the form of mature, well thought-out Americana roots country. In addition to the two-part singing, a steady rhythm drives the song forward. It’s music that can be likened to a road trip through the endless plains of Canada and Alaska.

The Zürich duo with Canadian-Swiss roots presents its second single: North 49. It is another glimpse into the upcoming album Salt of the Sea, which will be released this year. The first single, “Thick as Thieves,” made the rounds on radio stations in Switzerland, Germany, and Canada, played concerts throughout Switzerland, and received coverage from music blogs in the USA, France, and England.

lyrics

Nothing stays that I know, times a changing laying low
Mama told us play it straight walk the line pave the way
But I feel it now, rolling round the bend

Walk on, oh walk on through the deepest darkest night
Feel the fire begin to rise
So long, oh so long, there's a fever in my mind
On the way to be defined

No more days nine to five jumped the train north 49
Cross the plain's and icy lakes I do the deed to claim my stake
But I feel it now

Walk on, oh walk on through the deepest darkest night
Feel the fire begin to rise
So long, oh so long, there's a fever in my mind
On the way to be defined

Headed up north, trust the lord to save my soul
headed up north, heading home

Walk on, oh walk on through the deepest darkest night
Feel the fire begin to rise
So long, oh so long, there's a fever in my mind
On the way to be defined
