Neon Hitch Shines During Acoustic Performance of “Gold” in Central Park

by Bradley Stern

With all the powerhouse pop production that’s been pulsating through the airwaves lately, sometimes it’s nice to take a tune and strip it down to its purest melody–and that’s exactly what MuuMuse fave Neon Hitch just did with her latest single.

To promote “Gold,” which was co-crafted by Neon, Bruno Mars, Claude Kelly, Benny Blanco, The Smeezingtons, the gypsy-pop princess headed down to Central Park to perform a completely acoustic rendition, along with a few musically-inclined friends.

Watch below as Neon, accompanied by beatboxer Rahzel and string duo Black Violin, belts out a stunning take on “Gold,” jam session style. They even work up a bit of a crowd in the process! The performance really highlights the sugary-sweet tone, power and control of Neon’s voice. You hearing this? All natural!

Even without a lick of production, she still shines like go-o-o-o-o-old.

“Gold” was released on August 10. (iTunes)
