Tulsa’s alt-glam rock and roll outfit Golden Ones are set to release their debut LP, "Nowhere Fast" Nov. 27 on the Tulsa-based nonprofit label Horton Records.

Fronted by powerhouse vocalist Sarah Frick, the band pays homage to David Bowie and takes its name from a line in “Oh! You Pretty Things”: “I think about a world to come where the books were found by the Golden Ones. Written in pain, written in awe, by a puzzled man who questioned what we were here for.”

The LP’s 10 original songs were recorded over two days in July at Leon Russell’s Paradise Studio by Jason Weinheimer and Zachariah Reeves of Fellowship Hall Sound, according to a news release. 

The lyrics touch on a variety of topics, including the current state of the world, the anxiety of getting older, feminist anthems, addiction and love in all its forms - all gilded with crunchy guitars, booming drums, infectious melodies and the slinky, glittery grooves of the 1970s.

“Ain’t Nothing Better” finds Frick channeling Heart's Ann Wilson to a Jimmy Page-inspired guitar riff. Released last fall, the video finds the band bathed in pink, glittery light while they’re at their '70s rock best.

Along with the lead singer, the quartet includes lead guitarist Sean Fisher, bassist Jesse Frick and drummer Jay Sullivan. 

The band was formed in 2016, shortly after Sarah and Jesse Frick returned to Tulsa after a three-year stint in San Diego, California.  

“The beauty of the Tulsa music community is how deep rooted and diverse it is. Horton Records has been a staple of support in my music career, as well as many others. Being from Tulsa has exposed me to all genres of music and amazing players. I feel like being a musician from Tulsa is a little badge of honor because of all the history here. And we have the Cain's Ballroom, a legendary historical venue, which we’ve been lucky enough to play a few times,” Sarah Frick says of her Oklahoma hometown in a statement. 

“We’re all at a place in our lives where there’s no drama, no egos, and we’re all in it for the same reason," she adds. “To connect with people through our music and to use it as a form of free therapy, it’s the greatest outlet.”
