Black Gold is a Brooklyn, New York, U.S. based music project with Eric Ronick (lead vocals, keyboards) and Than Luu (pronounced "Tahn" drums, guitar, percussions, vocals) formed in early 2006. The project was started after touring with M. Ward, Ambulance LTD, Rachael Yamagata, Panic! at the Disco, and Adam Franklin of Swervedriver. The formation followed with writing and recording at Ronick's Thinman Studios in Brooklyn, that culminated in the release of their debut album, Rush, released on February 3, 2009. Singles from the album include "Detroit" and "Plans & Reveries". Their single "Plans & Reveries" is hypothesized to be the most popular song from the music group, and it conveys the idea that some ideas are stuck to and followed while others become reveries and are never accomplished.
