KIM JANSSEN releases the video for GOULDIANS (or 18 perspectives on the same moment)!
Gouldians, the colorful birds, do not swarm. So when they swarm, it must be a sign. We see a group of different people just before the moment the birds fly over a mansion. The people are having drinks. They are celebrating something, we do not know. Maybe it has to do with the birds. Some people are frightened, some are hopeful, some don’t care.
We do not know what is going to happen after the birds fly over the mansion. Maybe it will bring the people together, maybe something positive comes out of it, or maybe it‘s a sign of nature that things are definitely are going to change. It sure has an apocalyptic feel.
Even if you don’t get these stories, it’s a mystery and pleasure to watch the video. Somehow the spectator starts to wonder what’s happening. Did I see that ball fall time after time in the water? Where is the boy with the bracelet looking at? Why is the girl not participating with her friends? Why is the man saying, that he puts on a tie and goes to people’s funerals. The video raises questions just as Kim music and lyrics are perspectives on the idea of Gouldians, something perfect, out of reach, but when you have it what will it bring?
