Founded in Falmouth, Cornwall in 2013, the GOLDEN DREGS is the project of Benjamin Woods, songwriter and producer currently residing in South London. From piano-man, bar-band, baritone karaoke-crooner to an all-singing-all-dancing seven piece, all guises of the GOLDEN DREGGS serve as a platform for Woods’s different musical output. Under the moniker he has released two albums in quick succession, Lafayette (2018) and Hope Is For The Hopeless (2019).
Benjamin Woods recently shared a new song from his upcoming GOLDEN DREGS album, On Grace & Dignity. Following early single ‘American Airlines’, ‘Sundown Lake’ is a coming-of-age song full of nostalgia where bandleader Benjamin Woods – joined by Issie Armstrong on backing vocals – muses on hazy memories of teenage life in Cornwall.

Releasing on 10 February 2023, Woods’ third album, On Grace & Dignity, considers his home and what it means to be shaped by a place – in this instance, Truro, Cornwall’s capital, home to a rare three-spired cathedral, a peaceful river and a lot of empty shops and flimsy out-of-town housing estates. In among the personal reflections on loss of innocence and inferiority, Woods spins subtly interweaving narratives about survival, desperate acts of violence, loss and the limitations of community in the face of rapacious gentrification. On Grace & Dignity unfolds at a graceful pace and is grounded by Woods’s deep voice, which seems to resonate from his feet. Written, recorded and produced by Woods from his South London home and childhood bedroom in Truro, it was mixed by Ali Chant (Perfume Genius, Aldous Harding) who provided additional production.
For the On Grace & Dignity visuals, Woods commissioned Bristol-based model-maker Edie Lawrence to construct an HO-scale fictional Cornish town. Christened Polgras, the 8 ft by 4 ft model features a viaduct, an estuary, a supermarket, new-build houses and industrial buildings; every song from On Grace & Dignity is represented by a scene in the town. “There are different parts of the experience of growing up in Cornwall in there,” he says. “Some of it was from me looking at it when I was down there that winter, and some of it was me harking back to the experience of growing up there. It’s defined by that sense of duality, of coexisting realities,” he explains. “You’re geographically so far away, and it has a strong identity of its own, as well as a different landscape. It’s so rugged and bleak, but beautiful – which is what I really like in music.”
On Grace & Dignity is released on 10 February 2023. To pre-order, head to goldendregs.ffm.to/gracedignity.
