Such is the premise for his latest music video, for new single "In My Car", the second single to be shared from his upcoming record.
“I asked Rob [Brandon, director] to just come and film us (my gran and I) being boring," Gold Panda explains of the concept. "But now, when I watch it back, it doesn’t seem mundane at all. It seems actually really nice and sweet. I was thinking about all this cool stuff we could do, slow-mo shots, what outfit I could wear, maybe an explosion and who could be in my crew. But real life is exciting enough; you just don’t see it when you’re in it."
"I think Derwin and myself are both in an artistic place that is quite real and honest and appreciative and we wanted to shoot a film that reflects that," Rob states of the video. "We both have an odd relationship with Chelmsford and we tried our best to try capture that without being contrived about it."
Gold Panda has also expanded his upcoming tour dates.
