The Stargazer Lilies–as we’ve addressed previously time and time again–have been born from the genius of the former Soundpool. The trio–comprised of Kim Field, John Cep, and Tammy Hirata–is at it again, this time with an album that just dropped this month. Door To The Sun is their second as The Stargazer Lilies, their first work under The Stargazer Lillies moniker in about three years. To say we were ready is an understatement.
The “Golden Key”video is as trippy as you would imagine, with the shoegaze sound almost reverberating off the visuals. Trees, blue skies with white billowy clouds, and sunsets are just some of the layers that overlap grainy, altered footage of the band jamming out to the song. It all culminates with footage of band members in the desert, the scorching sun a prominent focal point in the latter portion of the video.
“Golden Key is the hope of finding the answer to all of your dreams and desires. Inspired by the desert, transcendental meditation and the universe.”
