GoldLink is known for providing a compelling narrative when it comes to his videos, often presenting things in a non-linear fashion with surreal visuals. The two part Jerome D.-directed video for “Palm Trees” and “Late Night,” taken from GoldLink’s debut album And After That, We Didn’t Talk, starts when it ends, and ends where it starts. Telling a story while accompanied by the two different tracks, the video jumps around time, piecing together that last few moments of someone’s life.
The video is also one of the first videos from GoldLink to actually feature him in it, as he’d previously been known to be quite camera shy. After achieving success despite showing his face so little, it’s refreshing to see him make an appearance in one of his always on-point videos.
Watch the video for both of the songs above.
