With their debut album ‘On Reflection’ set for physical release Dec 14th via City Slang, Selling, the joint project of Gold Panda & Jas Shaw of Simian Mobile Disco are sharing a new video for album standout track “Dicker’s Dream”.
Directed by Tilly Shiner, the video was filmed around London, Essex & Japan using an iPhone, binoculars and gaffa tape. Tilly comments “I used a very DIY approach to capture footage on the street; everyday stuff, small details, the banal and beautiful.”
Gold Panda adds “In ‘Dicker’s Dream’, Tilly allows us to take a close-up look at people going about their daily business.
We are not voyeurs to anything illicit, instead we are given a glimpse of everyday and ordinary moments.
We watch people crossing roads, jogging, walking dogs, passing-by. We witness people getting caught in the rain or pausing to smoke. We see them check the time, wait for the lights to change, or a fish to bite.
They are at risk of being ‘caught’ on camera and identified, but we are only given fragments of their lives before they are whisked away by a passing train”
