Finally – it’s out!! Golden Globe is the first video from Hikari, mainly because its one of the closest songs to Loui’s heart on this project.
It really explores contrast and juxtapositioning – that of movement against the stationary if you will. Loui says “My beautiful, golden statue and prize can only ever be just beautiful and golden and motionless in the midst of my expressive excitement and passion around her.”
The contrast is captured using classic musical elements against contemporary boom-bap, and these themes are then carried into the music video using a high contrast grade and slow motion versus a highly animated performance.
The video was directed by Loui Lvndn, and Mcgee and stars model Yenani Madikwa and Loui himself, and was shot at the Alexander theatre in Braamfontein
