Golden Domsai, a living Tamagotchi by Matteo Cibic

Golden Domsai by Matteo Cibic

An oldie but a goodie, the Golden Domsai is a tiny planter inspired by the Tamagotchi craze of the 90s. Rather than planting a small succulent in an ordinary ceramic pot, designer Matteo Cibic has given the plant a personality of sorts, making it feel like a tiny astronaut. Of course, the gold plated version is the best of the bunch, but of course, it comes with a rather… hefty price tag. I guess some people out there might love well designed Tamagotchis still?

‘All For Gold’ by The Danger Is

This week on The Fox Is Black we’re taking gold as our theme so it seems like the perfect time to share this wonderful track called ‘All For Gold’ by Irish act The Danger Is. Niamh Farrell is the voice behind the moniker – a Dublin based artist and multi-instrumentalist who has a penchant for changeable melodies and smart pop hooks. Mixing instrumental builds with intimate moments, her voice is slight and airy one minute then sweet and soaring the next.

‘All For Gold’ is a wonderful slice of indie-pop made all the better by Niamh’s striking vocals. Tripping gently along on its own whimsical melody the song seems to build traction as it sweeps and soars along vocal hooks and eventually it almost gallops away as it gets caught up in its own dizzying frenzy of blissful pop.

The track comes from Niamh’s self-titled debut EP The Danger Is – an EP which comes highly recommended. Make sure to check out more music online here.

Theme Week: Gold


This week on The Fox Is Black we’re focusing on another theme, this time around the concept of gold. Gold has been used by cultures since before recorded history and still holds a strong place in our current economies and culture. I thought it would be fun to see what we could find, giving a look at the contemporary landscape of gold. Hopefully you all enjoy the ride.
