Black Gold “Shine”

Black Gold is a Brooklyn based music project with Eric Ronick (lead vocals, keyboards) and Than Luu (drums, guitar, percussions, vocals) formed in early 2006. The project was started after touring with M. Ward, Ambulance LTD, Rachael Yamagata, Panic! at the Disco, and Adam Franklin of Swervedriver. The formation followed with writing and recording at Ronick’s Thinman Studios in Brooklyn, that culminated in the release of their debut album, Rush, released on February 3, 2009. Singles from the album include “Detroit” and “Plans & Reveries.”

Filmed on location in the California desert by director Josh Forbes, the imagery was intended to illuminate some of the song’s lyrical themes. “The heart of the song is about a time in a person’s life when his or her faith is being tested in the most challenging way they’ve ever known,” band member Than Luu explains. “In that moment, you pray for something or someone so bad that you’d be crushed if you were let down and reborn if you were not. The concept for the video speaks to this test of faith and the dreams that go with it. You’ll see imagery of friends and loves lost, hints of hopes and fears, light and dark.” The video closes with dozens of Chinese Flying Lanterns released into the heavens, sending messages to loved ones past and present.
