The video options Kinds swimming, driving, dancing, and operating in an Italian coastal metropolis, high-waisted pants and lace gloves in addition. For anybody who is perhaps feeling a bit stir-crazy from months of quarantine, “Golden” is an escapist’s fantasy that follows Kinds as he beckons the digicam to run alongside the picturesque rocky shoreline with him.
“Golden,” the primary monitor on Kinds’ 2019 album Tremendous Line, radiates a heat embrace of harmonies and pulsing hi-hat cymbals that draw within the listener. The video’s vintage-esque yellow filter and beautiful Italian location play off the themes of the sunny-sounding tune as effectively.

So in the event you’re like me—and your semester in Rome is now a semester in Chestnut Hill—or in the event you’re simply bored of the identical 4 partitions of your bed room, “Golden” is a wonderful 3.5-minute break from the fact of COVID-19. It immerses its viewers right into a dream the place Harry Kinds can run down the center of the road, put on a yellow fisherman’s hat on a rocky shore, and strut his stuff in a teal swimsuit coat—all with out carrying a masks.
