Gold Panda Unveils "Marriage" Video, Preps New Single, and Hits the Road

UK micro-techno specialist and creator of the lovely Lucky Shiner LP, Gold Panda has finished up a brand-new video for album cut "Marriage" and shared it with the world post-haste. The video mirrors producer Derwin's emotive song quite perfectly with its precious imagery (good-looking people carrying around paper lanterns), up-close-and-personal vantage point (most shots have a very tight depth of field), and its wide array of colorful goings-on (fireworks, snow, and the beach all in one video?). All of the scenes and shots crafted by director Roni Shendar were obviously tailor made for Gold Panda (on location in India, Germany, and Israel, too), but one gets the sense that maybe the two artists worked together quite closely on the project. We're not sure how else such an ideal pairing could've come about. And if the video isn't enough, the musicmaker will be releasing this song as a single, along with remixes from Baths, Star Slinger, and Forest Swords, on March 1, and is currently on tour, as well.
