‘Nothing Gold’ borrows its title from a Robert Frost poem cited in ‘The Outsiders’ by S.E. Hinton, which delves into the interplay that unfolds amongst young adults as they make that turbulent transition between youth and adulthood.

As an observer, it might appear strange that it’s taken four albums for Joakim to confront a theme so obviously omnipresent in his work. But once again, he’s having fun misleading us as there is another underlying theme to the album : “Each song is about someone I don't want to be, or become, or about extreme behaviours and deviant habits,” reveals Joakim. “It’s like an exploration of the human dark sides, a way to exorcise the demons by becoming one of them within a song”.
