Jamie xx already had one video for “Gosh,” the track that opened his 2015 album In Colour, and it was a good one. But this morning, he’s shared a new one, and it’s great, an immediate video of the year contender. The M.I.A./Justice collaborator Romain Gavras directed the new “Gosh” video, and the sheer amount of money and planning that must’ve gone into it is mind-boggling to even consider. In the video, we see one singular figure, a towering young man with albinism, dressed in all white and surrounded by hundreds of disciples in Tisndechung, a Chinese city that has a massive Eiffel Tower replica. Gavras made the video with many, many extras and no CGI, and all of its images will sear their way into your brain. The video ends with a drone shot of the Eiffel Tower that’s just breathtaking. Watch it below.
In Colour is out now on Young Turks.
