Gwilym Gold: Flex

In this simple yet spellbinding 3D-rendered video (directed by visual artist and regular collaborator Eddie Peake) for Gwilym Gold’s track “Flex,” two characters have an intimate encounter that many are familiar with. But the ambiguity, paired with affection, offers a different, almost uneasy perspective. Inhabiting this seemingly empty fictitious space, Gwilym Gold build, layer by forlorn layer, harmonies and synths and percussive hits into a climax that never quite resolves, just echoes back.
