Golden Animals – Most My Time (Music Video)
by Steven Spoerl
Golden Animals are yet another Burger-affiliated act that have incorporated a retro aesthetic into forward thinking post-punk. Earlier this week the band released their black-and-white clip for “Most My Time”, which reflects the attitude of their music to absolute perfection. Floating through a hazy Halloween-friendly atmosphere, the video (conceived by Golden Animals in collaboration with Oswald James) jumps from eerie imagery to the everyday, creating an effective sense of tension-fueled discord that suits the band well. The cinematography throughout the video is genuinely stunning and the song itself is a good representation of the record it’s taken from, Hear Eye Go, which was released last fall. Golden Animals themselves specialize in a bluesy goth-punk take on 60’s powerpop, coming across like Thee Oh Sees with a classic Disney nightmare fetish (think The Skeleton Dance). The whole thing’s absolutely tremendous and worth a fair few visits. You can pick up Hear Eye Go from either label involved in the joint-effort release, Burger Records or The Reverberation Association Society. Watch “Most My Time” below.
