French singer songwriter Woodkid’s debut album ‘The Golden Age‘ is a work of stunning beauty. Released in April, 2013, it hit the number 2 spot in France soon after, number 4 in Switzerland and 13 in Austria. It should have been number 1 in all of these countries and many more, as it features some of the most beautiful and most haunting songs I’ve ever heard.
Today, I’m listening to Woodkid’s ‘Ghost Lights‘ from ‘The Golden Age‘ as my Repeat Rotation Video. It features Woodkid’s signature Baroque pop music, but this time with a strident accordion and a gorgeous drum beat and, even though it’s actually quite sinister, it’s also infinitely danceable.
And, yes, I usually do tell you to listen to my Repeat Rotation Video choices with headphones on and eyes closed but, with ‘Ghost Lights’, that’s really the only way to listen to it. If you want the full effect of this gorgeous track, that is.
