About The Golden Dregs

The project of baritone-voiced songwriter Benjamin Woods, the GOLDEN DREGS puts a premium on storytelling, citing Raymond Carver and Lydia Davis as primary influences. Alongside a backing band, he released a pair of GOLDEN DREGS albums in 2018 and 2019, then teamed up with London-based artist Vogues and a collection of guest singers for the next year’s Sorry for Your Loss EP, spiking Woods’ shambly indie rock with electronic elements. A change of fortune, including a pandemic and job loss, prompted a move and a return to his more organic origins on 2023’s On Grace & Dignity, his debut for 4AD.
