After recently announcing his upcoming album ‘Good Luck And Do Your Best’, due 27th May via City Slang, Gold Panda is sharing the second single from the record, ‘In My Car’, online now. Gold Panda has also announced more UK live dates, in addition to the headline London show on 30th May.
Filmed by Rob Brandon, the ‘In My Car’ video was shot in Gold Panda’s hometown of Chelmsford and portrays an intimate look into the life of the producer, starring non-other than his grandmother, Lakhi Shiner.
Gold Panda said “I asked Rob to just come and film us (my gran and I) being boring. 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.”
Rob spoke about what he wanted to get across in the video when he said “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. We both have an odd relationship with Chelmsford and we tried our best to try capture that without being contrived about it.”
