Say Lou Lou Reveal Official Video For “Golden Child” Today.
The video for “Golden Child,” which was filmed over the course of 5 days partly on location at Joshua Tree National Park with directors Laura Gorun and Dimitri Basil, is a lesson in surreal sci-fi tinged cinema, another perfect aesthetic from the Swedish/Australian twins. On the thinking behind the video, the band describe it as “A dream like narrative about false ideas of freedom – how we are frozen in the roles we are dealt like self-imposed statues, imitated, constructed and systematically kept in our place. Can we break the chain if we don’t see it?” ‘Golden Child’ similarly serves as a stunning reminder of the girl’s musical prowess, showcasing a refreshing new sound that references the old Hollywood golden era and 70’s West Coast with its prevalent guitar licks and crisp drum fills.

“I wrote ‘KSS’ on January 1st 2018. I had the flu and was feeling down and out physically. But my spirits were high cause I had seen my two favorites John Mayer and Dave Chappelle perform at The Forum for New Years also just ate some ganja food. I forced myself to go in the studio cause I always want to make something the 1st day of the new year. I ended up making the beat out of a song my girlfriend (Danielle) had made. Once the beat was together the hook just popped into my head. It took all my energy to record it but I kept those recordings for the final version cause you can feel the emotions in those takes. The song is my MJ Flu Game.”
