Video: Gold Panda – Chiba Nights
After releasing his new album ‘Good Luck And Do Your Best’ last week via City Slang, Gold Panda has shared new visuals for album standout track ‘Chiba Nights’.
Speaking about the ‘Chiba Nights’ video, which FACT called “a bewitching travelogue postcard from Japan”, director Dan Tombs offered a little insight into the making of the visuals:
“Spending a week in Tokyo and surrounding areas of Chiba and Minowa with Derwin, searching for unusual records, video games, payphones, workwear and LaserDiscs, I captured the rich visual environment of the country and fun moments spending time with friends and family. This is sliced into a grid of sixteen squares in reference to the MPC sampler that Gold Panda creates all his music with, changing with the rhythm of the track colliding the sights, colours and shapes together and breaking out in psychedelic kaleidoscopes.”

Gold Panda has announced a series of live shows, including UK and European summer festival appearances with London’s Field Day on June 11th.
