SQRD – Gold | Music Video

SQRD 26.07.2016ANDREW


Swedish-born, Berlin-based artist Carl Robin Kirchmann, better known as SQRD, is back with a video for his song, “Gold”. New EP, also called Gold, due out now via Fresh Milk, is apparently based upon the end of a seven year relationship and learning to strike out in life on his own.


“Gold” begins eerie, gradually building. Vocals intermittently tick tock like the ticking of a clock, aided by big clapping drum. It fleshes out by the midway point, noticeably busier. Wayward synthesiser sounds like the wailing of a siren. There is a weird, very dynamic, closing with the vocals ending abruptly yet the backdrop fading out.


The video, shot in black and white, appears to show a relatively dimly lit room. The black and white clip probably emphasises, exaggerates, what is dark and what is light. In it a girl dances in what can, perhaps, be described as ballerina of a very unorthodox style. Very dramatic and expressive.

I've always wanted to be involved in the media since before I even left school; to write for a living.I feel most eloquent when mapping out my thoughts on paper or on a computer screen.I studied media at college for two years, and went straight into third year at university studying publishing with journalism.After a range of work experience, I did a magazine journalism course in Bournemouth, a long way away from my hometown of Aberdeen, achieving my NCTJ qualifications.Now I spend my time gladly writing about music.
