Golden Suits 'Gold Feeling' by Sean Pecknold
Sean Pecknold gives us all a Gold Feeling in this dance fantasy film for Fred Nicolas, aka Golden Suits.
The clip sees a young boy try to salvage the remains of a Middle School dance, and win over his dream girl, albeit a little too late. That doesn't seem to stop him having a good time - with lighthearted, charming choreography melding seamlessly with costume and production design to bring the nostalgic elements of the video to the fore.
“Fred said, pick any song from the record, and I listened to the whole thing a couple times, and it was a hard choice because there are a lot of really catchy jams on it. But the one that I kept coming back to was Gold Feeling. It got stuck in my head like songs used to do in Middle School. Iʼd hear it on the radio, try and tape it on my Boombox with Bass Boost. And then Iʼd just play it over and over again, and again, cause it made me feel something. This song does that, it lifts me up.
"I wanted to do a dance video, but place it in a context that was familiar to that memory. I remember getting ignored at a middle school dance, and I wanted to see someone really grooving out to the song and proving to his imaginary dream girl that he does have moves.
"Iʼm lucky to have a bunch of really talented friends and collaborators here in LA, and they all rallied together to make this video happen on a Saturday because the song made them feel good. So thank you to Adi Goodrich, Zia Mohajerjasbi, Kat Rumford, Harry Calbom and Airrion Copeland. And to Michael the dancer for bringing his good vibes and super-talent. And very special thanks to Fred Nicolas for making this classic jam.”
